We went straight from Alderney to Sark and anchored
in the beautiful Derrible Bay where we spent another rather rolly
so we moved up, the coast to some mooring bouys
(£15 per night) and ...spent another rolly night ...with fog.
We were getting used to navigating through the
Sark, three miles long and half
a mile wide, is a very scenic island. The rugged cliffs are full
of caves and jagged rocks which look very dramatic from the seaward side. It
looks impenetrable but up from the beaches run luxuriant paths for a steep
walk up to habitation. We could have hired bikes
easily but decided to hoof it and went from Sark to Little Sark across the
narrow stretch of La Coupee. The place is lush, lots of the houses are also
cafes and there are lots of rather good restaurants. No cars and lots of old
world charm, this was a really good visit.
Looking down from La Coupee. It is quite
narrow and some people couldn't go across because they got vertigo, however, the
local horse and carriage vehicles manage it easily!
