Hermione visits…Guernsey!

Sep 10

That’s right, Hermione broke from the herd and plodded over to visit the home of one of her relatives, the Guernsey breed of cattle! Guernsey is a channel island. It’s official title is the “Bailiwick of Guernsey”. The bailiwick includes ten parishes on the island of Guernsey and the islands of Sark and Alderney.

"Hey there cousin!"

“Hey there cousin!”

Hermione chatted with a bovine cousin at the Goldsmith’s Workshop in Guernsey.

Ooooo, look at all of these pretty jewels, stones, and china!"

The Little Chapel at Guernsey has quite a story. The official website begins the story in 1680 in France, with the founding of “The Brothers of Christian Schools”. In 1904 the French Government put a stop to religious education. Some took their work to Guernsey. Brother Deodat (=given to God), feeling nostalgia for Lourdes, France, began work on a grotto replica in 1914.

"Mmmmm, ice cream from Guernsey milk!"

Guernsey milk has a high percentage of butter fat and protein. The milk has a golden color, due to its high content of beta-carotene.
