The low cloud, mist and drizzle, which has been a constant since Wednesday morning continued over the weekend. Despite the gloom we did manage 2 north coast paddles.
On Saturday we headed west from Bonne Nuit along to Sorel and on the Sunday we headed east from Greve de Lecq towards Sorel. We are hoping for a bit of sunshine over the next week or so (although its not looking that likely) but in spite of the weather we had a couple of good sea kayaking trips on the two days before Christmas.
Sorel Lighthouse was built in 1938 and it currently has an alternating red and white flash every 7.5 seconds, warning mariners of the hazards of the north coast of Jersey and the offshore islets such as the Paternosters.
The headland is the most northerly point of the Island and on clear days, there are great views of the Normandy coast as well as the other islands, including Alderney on days with extra special clarity.
For those interested in such things the exact location is 49° 15′ 36.3″ N 2° 9′ 32.8″ W
