  1. Oh, drat! Right, a habitable building and a stone jetty on which to disembark. Now don't tell me it has one of those too. 😂 Ed.
  2. Right, Nottingham, I've tried the Condor pizza so you don't have to. But, it was actually really good. They asked me to come and collect it in 5 minutes once it was oven cooked. I don't know if it started out frozen but the taste was fine (just cheese and tomato) and not too big for one. Perhaps a little on the salty side but certainly nothing to complain about. That was obviously on Condor Rapide but I'm sure the Liberation ones are the same. Ed
  3. I actually think that my trip was cancelled due to a lack of reservations and not the weather. There seem to have only been 3 of us booked for a trip which could accept 12. The rival company has a policy of 5 minimum to make it worthwhile but I can't find such a clause for the company I was due to travel with. So, instead of the Miniquiers I went to Elizabeth Castle for a guided tour which was interesting. I also managed to travel there and back on Charming Nancy (sister to Charming Betty) which is half ferry, half bus, half land-rover. When the tide is out she trundles across the sand next to the pedestrian causeway and when it's in she engages her propeller and chugs over. I hadn't travelled on her before so that's another new ferry to add to my list. 😀 Ed.
  4. I didn't include that one on my list as I'm only doing those with habitable structures (and not lighthouses) on them. But if I'm ever on Alderney, and the trip is available, I'll be first in line. Ed.
  5. Well, it's either that or find a cow to milk, I guess. Ed.
  6. Chausey is great, I agree. As to my Miniquiers trip, guess what? Cancelled again. This time the sea state is too rough for the crossing. Or they judge it will be too uncomfortable for the passengers. So what to do in Jersey for the day now? 😕 Ed.
  7. They are all too drunk to be doing much invading this afternoon. 😊 Ed.
  8. It's the first time I've ever taken the Saturday afternoon crossing to Jersey and it's packed. There is a sort of happy, party atmosphere on board. I guess the vast majority of the passengers (and most appeared to be on foot) are Jersey residents who came over to St Malo on the morning crossing, have spent a few hours shopping and eating and drinking, and are now on their way home. Since my last crossing in April Condor have installed seat covers on all the chairs. Very smart grey ones on the upper deck and blue on the larger, lower deck. Ed
  9. Even with Rapide on the berth, there is still plenty of room for a decrepit Russian freighter to pass by and enter the lock. Ed
  10. I'm glad you got back as planned. However, given the price I imagine you paid for that cabin and the level comfort you expected to receive, I think that is unacceptable. PA has been tied up for a month so the company have had ample time to give her a thorough clean (even if that means bussing their cleaners to Brest) so that she's spotless for the summer season and to offset some of the disappointment relating to her technical issues. Did you bring it to the attention of the reception staff or take photos of the problem? Ed.
