We had really been looking forward to a boat trip to Herm – and we were not disappointed! It is beautiful. We were warned about sunburn as the air is so clear and felt rather smug in our factor 30 sunblock and sunhats, and yet we still got burnt!
speckled wood butterfly – appropriately in the woodland walk
a grayling butterfly
I can’t see a goat without thinking of my friend Anja!
Mark posing on a throne carved from a tree trunk
we found carved toadstools all over the island
speckled wood (I think…or may be a Glanville fritillary?)
shell beach – soft sand, perfect for kids
5 spot burnet moths – thanks for the ID Kath, Tracey and Anna-Karin!
one day this will be my house…
if I stay on Herm I want the hotel room at the top with the turret and balcony!
Well that’s it – a wonderful week. I am pretty sure we will be going back some time!
