Meet the Islanders - Clare

There are some mornings where you're swimming with seals and seeing the most unbelievable sunrise. It's so important in the kind of frenetic busyness of life to take a bit of time out.

There's a sort of secret of life that actually Alderney does very well. Picking berries with my granddaughter is just one of the most sublimely beautiful things to do.

I used to be just a summer visitor and now living here I've really feel that I've got to know the community in such a wonderfully different way. This funny little island has such a way of teaching us and showing us perhaps a better way of living.
