That usually makes Aleks, one of my gay colleague happy, as he fancy one of the immigration officer. When we are coming back from France and stopping at the Channel Islands, the UK immigration officer are coming onboard the ship to verify the passport of every passenger. So then it doesn't need to be done anymore once we arrive in Poole.
That brings us another task, we need to ensure every passenger is at its seats, close and inspect every corner of the ship so that nobody is hidding. On my case, I also need (then and in any other required circumstances) to make some french announcement or assists the french passenger.
St-Peter-Port is a nice harbour, often we do arrive at port at the same time than other vessels. So it looks like a busy port. We have a decent view on the city and the fortress protecting it. For the rest that's about it. The nicest part when sailing is to pass by Herm Island and Sark Island which are both looking pretty beautiful.
During the sailing we also have to pass by Alderney, which offers a nice rocky view on both side of the ship as we are passing by. And we always notice it as it announce we are about to be in Guernsey within an hour and it always cause motion by the waves.
I may try to manage to add some pictures from the ship, otherwise for Guernsey itself you may want to look at some of my previous entry!
