Rare opportunities…

Posted on: July 19th, 2012 by Andrew Syvret

A couple of very special walks coming up ~ both Icho & Seymour Towers under the full moon. Thanks to Jersey Life for the below advertisement. Saturday night’s charity walk is almost fully subscribed and there are a few places remaining on Friday night’s trek (starting @ 00h30 Sat 4 Aug). Breakfast isn’t booked for this one, so you’ll need to bring your own, but for £15, we promise you a true “lunatic outing”…

Buffeted but unbowed…

Just a couple of things we’ve seen and liked while out and about in the last couple of days…

Ripples from an ancient seabed. The oldest rocks in Jersey, the Brioverian shales were formed between 660 & 540 million years ago. The term Brioverian originates from Briovère (‘bridge over the Vire’) the Gaulish name for St. Lô, the type area in Normandy. On Le Mont Matthieu, St Ouen…
À bétôt!

Jersey Tourism Spring Walking Week

Posted on: May 14th, 2012 by Andrew Syvret

Just a note to flag up three walks that we’re sure are going to be good ones:

Friday 18th May ~ Green Street to Gorey ~ visit the beaches of five different parishes on an ebbing tide wander through the upper reaches of the Channel Island’s first Ramsar Wetland of International Importance. From Havre des Pas, original site of the celebrated Jersey Marine Biological Station, stroll through Le Dicq and Grève d’Azette – favourite haunts of Victor Hugo. Next, you’ll discover Green Island, Le Hocq and La Rocque, each with its own fascinating history, before heading round the south eastern corner of the Island to traverse the wide, rich sands of the Royal Bay of Grouville. The final part of the journey brings you to Mont Orgueil Castle, overlooking picturesque Gorey Harbour. Leaving at 09h30, for the very first time.

Saturday 19th May ~ La Corbière Corner ~ if you’re curious about Jersey’s marine environment but only have 90 minutes to spare and don’t fancy getting your feet wet, this is the one for you. Simple stroll, lots to see and learn. Just a fiver! (11h00 start)

Sunday 20th May ~ Moonwalk to Seymour Tower ~ enjoy the Island’s most famous low tide ramble with the guide who dreamt it all up. (11h30m start) An extra outing, by request.

 

We can’t promise you dolphins, but we can guarantee your interest. Please call/text Andrew on 07797718472 or email: andrew@seajersey.com for more details…


Learning as we wander…

I’m no plant expert, but believe this beautiful specimen to be a green-winged or green-veined orchid (Anacamptis morio or Orchis morio). Seen this morning on Les Blanches Banques, St Ouen’s Bay. (Phone pic.) If it isn’t, I’d be pleased to be corrected…

Happily, we’ve been busy outdoors, so apologies for the lack of blog activity. Now we’ve switched software, next job is a gallery update.

Brochures are presently finding their way around the Island, so please keep an eye out for those, they look a bit like this…

 

And, herring gull OA5 was in his usual spot at Le Grouet at 16h30 today…
