Tour around Jersey part 1.

Sometimes, it can be hard to write a blog. Not knowing what to write or show.

So for this, I thought I would take you on a tour of Jersey, my home, the small southerly Island that although only 45 square miles packs a lot in. The plan for this first post, I thought I would take you to the Sand Dunes.

The Sand dunes, or ‘the dunes’ as I call them are a unique habitat due in part to the important flora and fauna they contain and are very sensitive and highly threatened habitats throughout Europe. The Sand Dunes in St.Ouens Bay Jersey are protected by an SSI (site of special Interest).

Below are a few images that I took on a short walk.  The lone tree in the distance is always a good marker to aim for when you start a walk on the dunes as you can see it from the car park. You can see St.Ouens Bay in the distance.

I love how the above plant looks against the blue sky. The image below, be prepared for some hard walking, the dunes can take it out of you with some of the paths being steep with shifting sands.P1040484P1040483

A walkers paradise, no matter what time of year. I have been walking these dunes for years, either with my dogs, my family or just on my own to explore and think. If you are lucky enough to visit the dunes on a day like this, then you will see this part of our special Island of Jersey in all of it’s natural beauty.

Thank you.
