Still Guernsey

Dinner last night was a bit of a disaster. We both had crab cakes to start, which tasted mostly of potato and not a lot of crab. The was no a la cart menu but because they were so not busy, they did offer us the bar menu as well. Mary plumped for scampi and chips. The scampi was over cooked and the chips were white, limp and basically inedible. She took the burnt outer coating off the scampi, left quite a few and all of the chips. I had sea bream which was pretty tasteless. The new potatoes and veg were OK. A  bland fruit salad for desert brought a very unmemorable meal to a conclusion. We were not charged for the scampi.

The room has a sea view, is pleasantly large and a seperate toilet from the bathroom, that neither of us can say we have ever seen in any hotel.


But the double bed I think is the smallest we have ever slept in, in all our travels round the globe!

So off for another walk after a pleasant breakfast. Hope these fish are not too frightened by the starving dinner guests!


Going to see the hospital radio this afternoon. And at least the sun is shining.

Thanks for reading M & M ⛵️🍷🍷

Malcolm and Mary

Malcolm worked for LWT. Mary worked for TRL. They live near Camberley in Surrey and did achieve their life long ambition to visit New Zealand. They have two daughters Laura and Hannah and two grandchildren Zach & Safi. Having done the big trip they then went to Canada, which was amazing. Scroll down it’s all here. They have visited Venice that they both so fell in love with in 2009 again. And recently returned to Lefkada for one week in glorious sunshine. Where next? Well, Canada is calling again in 2019; this time including Alaska. So stay tuned if you enjoy the ups and downs of travelling.

  1. They do say that you step back a few years in time when you visit Guernsey. Have you seen Basil or the Major yet? Sounds as though you might be “eating out” tonight

    1. See below! Pre paid set dinner with the other radio folk in the hotel. Strange you should say that about the Major because quite a deaf bloke over 90, we found out, said in a very loud voice,”Papers are a bit late this morning!” To which I added whispering to Mary ,” Faulty!” He had been on about being stationed in Norwich during the war. Your ESP senses are working well, David.

  2. We have a pre ordered dinner with the other hospital radio folk tonight. But there is a pub next door that may well get our custom tomorrow evening because our hopes are not too high for this evening!
