Day 19 - Walking around Jersey (St Aubin to La Pulente)

We had a perfect day for walking - blue skies, light breeze - and we actually got slightly pink.  We enjoyed our walk of just over 19 km.  We started out from our guest house and did the south west corner and were picked up late afternoon at La Pulente and transported back to our guest house.  We enjoyed lovely scenery, saw a lot of old German fortifications, climbed down and then climbed back up, tried to avoid gorse (very pickly), and walked across very wide beaches with the tide out.  We even walked past the Jersey Prison.  It is, of course, surrounded by hight wire fences, but also by gorse bushes which would put me off wanting to escape!!!  You are never more than 2 miles from the sea on Jersey, and you are very rarely out of sight of buildings.  A great day.

  1. Do any people live there? I can see houses but no people. Maybe they knew two Aussies were coming and cleared out.
