Betwixt the Fermain Beach Cafe and Fort George, there be a Bluebell Woods in the middle of April and early May. It is beautiful and filled with birdsong, a very soothing tonic to a busy and hectic life. A cruise ship visited Guernsey for the first time since October 2019. The Hanseatic Spirit stopped by and passengers made it to the woods to frolic amidst the birdsong and bluebells.
A fine and subtle spirit dwells
In every little flower,
Each one its own sweet feeling breathes
With more or less of power.
There is a silent eloquence
In every wild bluebell
That fills my softened heart with bliss
That words could never tell.
The Bluebell by Anne Brontë
