Tourist Season is upon us

These photos were taken in July in St Peter Port.

The cruise ships that visit Guernsey are truly enormous.

They are much taller than the buildings in town. There is a height restriction here and, I believe, buildings can not be taller than four storeys.

As you can see the visitors harbour is chock-a-block.

Tourism only counts for 3% of Guernsey's GDP.

The locals still seem to think it counts for alot more - still living in the bucket and spade holiday days of yesteryear!
