The fast ferries on Condor are HUGE catamarans! And I went and stood outside while we were moving and I couldn't stand the chill with the wind. Which is impressive because I have the skin of a polar bear.
We made it to St. Peter's Port in Guernsey just fine and walked to the Sunnycroft Hotel
We relaxed out on the balcony while figuring out what to do for dinner. We chose a place called L'Escalier...partly because it looked like they were close by, and partly because they offered a 7-course set dinner. The dinner was excellent, and we decided to get the wine course to go with the dinner, for 55GBP/person for 7-course dinner with paired wines. The dinner was so good that we forgot to take pictures of a lot of it. The chef is actually starring in his own TV show on BBC. It's called Blagger's Banquet. Sounds like an interesting concept.

Most of the way through the dinner, we met a couple who live on Guernsey, Phill and Carole. They shared stories, wine, liquor, and their house with us. We'll have to give them a call when we get back to Guernsey again...and I do owe them an apology for making a mess of the bathroom. They're heading out to Brazil soon, so we got to give them some pointers. Yeah, so it was a good night...even if it was only a few hours in Guernsey.
