Day 31 Guernsey - Beaches and Inspiration for Painters
A NEW LEARNING
What they say about Guernsey is what we see - beaches - over 20 of them. The island is blessed with some of the finest and most spectacular beaches in Europe, from secluded bays and rocky caves to sweeping sands. Quiet sandy coves are just right for sunworshippers and interesting reefs and rocks are everywhere for snorkellers, divers and rockpoolers to explore. I doubt that we are going to do any of the water sports here.
The colourful rocky beaches are responsible for inspiring some of Renoir's paintings, and Victor Hugo to write Les Miserables.
