Some more pics from my trip to Guernsey. This time of the capital St Peter Port.



On a Sunday in season the coast road is closed allowing a number of craft and food stalls to operate. It is rather nice.

Burano

Here are a few pictures from the lovely island of Burano.... for anyone going to Venice I recommend going out to the islands.... A day at Burano, its sister island Mazzorbo (linked by a wooden bridge, worth getting off the boat at Mazzorbo and walking to Burano) and Torcello (to come later) are well worth it.


Burano is famed for its Lace!









Looking back to Burano from Mazzorbo
