While we're all too busy to ever take time out to gaze out to sea, we thought you might like to enjoy the outlook yourselves. You could even send a link to your island-loving friends who might like to watch the sunrise over St Peter Port, the ebb and flow of the tide, the movement of boats and the arrival of cruise liners in front of Herm and Jethou.

For those of you unfamiliar with Guernsey, the view takes in the visitors' marina in the front of the picture which is usually full with French and English yachts at the height of the boating season, Castle Cornet on the right hand side, and the islands of Herm and Jethou in the distance. The camera faces pretty much due east.

Unfortunately, technology is not faultless - unlike our service! No doubt there will be occasions when the camera is disabled. Please bear with us, or drop a brief email to info@martelmaides.co.uk and bring it to our attention.

Enjoy the view!
