I can't believe I've reached the end of our Minimoon Monday series. Thanks for sticking with me through it all & hopefully it'll make you want to visit the fab place that is Jersey soon?!
We realised we were about to leave without any photos of Jersey cows (shocking I know!) so when we passed by a field of them we had to stop to say hi. Adam has never been very good with nature being a Town Mouse after all so no sooner had he walked up to the field he was stung by nettles & then when he reached out to stroke a cow he got an electric shock off the fence! Oh dear! After I'd stopped giggling & Adam's arm had stopped shaking we noticed all the cows were walking away from us & towards a tourist bus, it was hilarious they way they all stood there & stared at the bus while everyone on the bus sat & stared at them & took photos! I don't know who was more fascinated!
Our next stop was the Battle of the Flowers Museum. Next time we head to Jersey I really want to be there for the Battle of the Flowers it sounds & looks beautiful. We weren't sure what to expect of the museum cos it was a bit off the beaten track but after we'd paid our entrance to a really friendly lady we were pleasantly surprised. We didn't expect it to be as big as it was & all the pieces were made by Florence Bechelet over the year who first started taking part in 1934 & still had her float this year. I was in awe of all her beautiful work. Sadly I've just googled Florence & found out she passed away on the 25th September (see the article from the Jersey Evening Post HERE) & it looks like the museum will close :( I hope it doesn't come to this & all her work gets forgotten about but we were the only people walking around the whole time so maybe they're not making enough money. Sad times.
Our little Minimoon seems like a dream now but thankfully we've still got Japan (our big Honeymoon) to plan & we can't wait to get it all booked & sorted. Yay! I love how long we're making our wedding celebration last! ;) You must have realised by now I don't do things by half! :P
