Celebrating, Jersey style

Today, we are celebrating. I am so proud of my clan!

My niece has come to stay for the summer, and after a few weeks of hard work and training she is now a fully fledged member of staff and you’ll find her on the beach with the jet skis all summer long. And now my step-daughter, after working very hard on her placement from college, has been offered the chance to do beach lifeguard training and the offer of a job as a surf coach for the summer, so you’ll find her on the beach all summer long too. Added to that my boy working consistently hard as an apprentice electrician, and you can see why I am proud of my clan.

To celebrate, the girls and I headed to the beach at Long Beach, Gorey. I love this walk from the car park down to the beach, waiting for that glimpse of golden sand and the beautiful sea.
