Jersey’s Cabin Cafe

Jersey’s Cabin Cafe

The Cabin Cafe was a place we found towards the end of our week on Jersey but we wound up going back twice because it was really good. The garnish was surprising, the dogs that hung out with their owners were entertaining and the beach […]

Jersey’s La Corbiere Lighthouse

Jersey’s La Corbiere Lighthouse

On the second day on Jersey we took the Full Island Tour (You can read about HERE) and stopped briefly at La Corbiere Lighthouse. I think we were there for about 15 minutes which didn’t allow us time to walk out to the Lighthouse at the […]

Jersey’s Gunsite Cafe

Jersey’s Gunsite Cafe

One of the great but unexpected places we ate on St Lawrence Beach on Jersey was the Gunsite Cafe. This was the first place we found to eat on the island. We were starving and really didn’t know what to expect. It’s not a trendy […]

Jersey’s St Lawrence Beach

Jersey’s St Lawrence Beach

When we were planning our trip to Jersey I was excited to find an apartment across the street from the beach. It was so comfortable and convenient. St Lawrence beach was what we walked up and down daily with our coffee, when we got pizza […]

Jersey Mark Jordan Restaurant

Jersey Mark Jordan Restaurant

I’ve been looking through some pictures of our trip to Jersey this past summer and thought I’d share a little about Mark Jordan Restaurant. This was the loveliest place we ate when we were on the island of Jersey. The food was delicious… the decor […]

Jersey War Tunnels

Jersey War Tunnels

When you go to the War Tunnels and see all of the exhibits about the occupation of the islands by the Germans during WWII you can see how truly unique the Channel Islands were and are. I’d have to say that the War Tunnels were one […]

Jersey Lavender Fields

Jersey Lavender Fields

Being as honest as possible without being rude about it, I’ll say that this was not my favorite thing to do on the island. First off I lead my mom and I on the wrong path to the farm. By this I mean that I […]

Step back in time at LBJ Ranch

Step back in time at LBJ Ranch

I will be the first to admit that I didn’t know a lot about Mr Johnson before visiting his ranch in Johnson City, Texas. This place is truly a museum to his life. How remarkable it was. Stepping back in time with the house refurbished […]

The Dark Horse in Moseley Village

The Dark Horse in Moseley Village

The Dark Horse is the first place we ate in Moseley Village. We were casing the area for a potential place to live and stopped because we were starving. I am so glad we did and we have returned time and again since. My favorite […]

A short stay at Castle Bromwich in Birmingham

A short stay at Castle Bromwich in Birmingham

When I first visited Birmingham we stayed here for a few nights so we could get the lay of the land. It was interesting. Can’t say I’d stay again but it was an experience and I try not to throw those away. We wandered around […]
