Guernsey Day 5 - Herm Island

We caught the bus into St Peter Port  in reasonable sunshine , to get the boat over to the small island of Herm.  This was our boat.. a catamaran..


We were early so a few pics while we waited to board the boat....






Looking back at the mainland as we left the harbour



Castle Cornet in the distance..


We passed the Queen Elizabeth on the way out of the harbour..

Landed and started our walk around the island.. Herm has no traffic and despite the number of people getting off the boat, we soon lost them.  The peace and quiet of this island is wonderful










These tiny roses where everywhere - a carpet of them..





I think this is a Small Blue







Alliums growing wild everywhere it seemed..



Honeysuckle














We stopped for a cuppa before catching the return boat





A truly great day and lovely walking.. managed to see, very briefly, a humming bird hawk moth, longer view of a painted lady and about 15 puffins on on the sea... the latter being rather far away but nonetheless good to see them
