Jersey's Pictures

A Collection of Mansells
A Collection of Mansells (Canon PowerShot SX230 HS)

At the Mansell Collection, which is disappointingly only has a small collection of Mansells and instead seems to be full of cars and car bits. So as you an guess, this weekend we were in Jersey. Fun for the whole family if it weren't for the fact that not all the family was there and the wind was so bad it made each flight (and there were 4) really quite horrendous. In fact the flights got worse with each one, saving the mother of all killer landings to the end which is not fun in the best of times, but bearing in mind I don't know what time I got to bed because I was in the residents bar to stupid o'clock, then it all added up to be a complete arse.

Anyway, back to the Mansell Collection which is basically a £10 jaunt in one small room packed with trophies and cars with the every excited Nigel narrating you through every detail as only a Nigel can. Still I did find out that there is a Birkin 7 which is basically a Caterham/Lotus 7 for the US market, but I'm not sure that little factoid is worth £10.

Tamarind Paste
Tamarind Paste (Canon PowerShot SX230 HS)

I have always wondered whether Emporer Monkeys tasted of Orange, mainly due to the fact that in my mind Tamarind sounds like a mash up of Tangarine and Mandarin. Of course they don't taste of Orange as that would be silly, everyone knows that they taste of mint and even at this proximity to them it would cause deep distress to them and probably me, should I try to give one a hearty lick.

Just so you know, these are in the Durrell wildlife park for wildlife that earn far too much and want to become Jersey residents to avoid UK tax. So it appears that these chaps have a bob or two and sit their taunting me with their fresh minty flavour and piles of cash and yet expect people like me to pay to see them get three square meals a day all paid for out of my entrance money... it makes me sick.

I say send them back where they came from and whilst that could be the Durrell Wildlife Park, I mean India or somewhere not here.

German Fort
German Fort (Canon PowerShot SX230 HS)

All fun as usual, this time it's fun in Jersey. This picture is of the fort just of St Aubin. The sun is hot... ish and the wind is raging, the walls are thin but it's a pretty little bit of the country if you know what I mean. I have yet to venture out much other than St Aubin at the moment but that will happen in time. Not that there is too much of the island to be honest, though I did watch the adverts for Jersey before I left and I must admit I haven't yet seen where they were filmed so perhaps it's larger than I think. I must visit Town at one point and by that I mean St. Hellier. I alsomust see if I can get to the fort, which is walkable when the tide is out. Getting there isn't the problem, knowing you can get back is probably the issue.
