I'm planning a trip to the Channel Islands

Jealous bitches?

I'm going to go to the Jersey, the island of Henry Cavill's birth and wander around haunted mansions like Nicole Kidman and solve mysteries like Bergerac.

I'm going to get a boat to Sark and listen to Enya.

I'm going to go to Guernsey and walk in the footsteps of Nazis and eat potato peel pie.

Any recommendations for what else I can do there?

Actually, YES! I am envious . . .

If you haven't already, read Sybil Hathaway's autobiography Dame of Sark: An Autobiography

Sounds like a day trip that will quickly turn into boredom. Sark, that is. Guernsey and Jersey should be interesting.

I would like to do that one day.

Offshore banking fun, OP?

I've been to Jersey in August and the sea is freezing. Too cold to swim. We had rain for a couple of days too.

There are some lovely scenic coastal walks and lots of places to stop for food and drink.

I plan to and spend a few days there at a later point and experience Enya's dark sky and sail away sail away sail away and do some kayaking, biking and swimming.

One of the Boston TV channels put together a montage of some of the horror footage of 9-11 around the time it was happening and backed it with Enya. Since that time, Enya has always made me think of 9-11, and likely always will. I can't listen to Enya.

Sail Away OP.

OP, I’d suggest that you take possession of Brecqhou (and the most hideous castle in Europe), and attempt to declare its independence from Sark. Then, when that fails, you can dedicate a decade or two to making life a misery for all those who thwart your will.

I had a tremendous time. Highly recommended.
