Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _ Fridoy, September 24, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAtD The Channel Islands- The Britain nobody knows THE EXUMA5, BAHAMA OUT ISLANDS Two rolling islands and 350 cays com- prise this group of Bahama Out Islands. Hidden hilltop villages, historical monuments ond pirate haunts of a bygone era await your exploration. Accommodation, such as the Out Island Inn at sleepy George Town (above) can put you right on the beach. Sun-drenched Out Islands of Bahamas await visitors NASSAU, Bahamas There are no bad guest facilities in the Bahamas it's just that some are better Ihan others. It is equally Irue that although this perennially sunny country consists of 700 friendly tropical "Out Islands" spread over 000 square miles of iridescent ocean, only 20 of them have, up to now, been developed as tourist resorts. This means there is plenty of living space in the idyllic archipelago whare even in the summer w hen temperatures rarely go above the high eigh- ties, there are always the gen- tle trade winds to fan you. The 20 developed Bahama Out Islands have hotels or com- fortable guest houses that range from the ultra-luxurious to the small, intimate facility where the living is more like being part of a private house party. Their names are as roman- tic-sounding as their scenery and history. All are populated with gentle, smiling people with a curious soft-spoken ac- cent that dates back lo Ihe ear- ly settlers who came centuries ago. Each of the developed Out Is- lands has its own traditions and personality and, if you take the trouble to stop and talk awhile with the local inhabitants, there's nothing tliey enjoy more than telling you about them. Don't be surprised, for in- stance, if on one island most of (he inhabitants answer to no more Ihan a handful of sur- names. Like Americans who claim to j have arrived in the New World I on the "Mayflower" yhu'll find many a family on the 100-miles- long island of Eleuthera and elsewhere who can say their ancestors were among the first permanent European settlers in the Bahamas.

Later were to come Loyalist plantation owners from the and New England states to establish a new life away from the American Rev- olutionary War. The remains ol their once prosperous cotton- growing industry and gracious mansions are today mule testi- mony of their place in the sto- ried hislory of tbe Bahamas. In alphabetic order, the names of the 20 resort Out Is- lands possessing tourist resort accommodations are: Abaco, Great Guana Cay, Green Turtle Cay, Elbow Cay, Man-0-War Cay, Andros, Chub Cay, Great Harbor Cay, North Bimini, South Bimini, Cat Is- land, Eleuthera, Spanish Wells, Exuma, Staniel Cay, Harbor Is- land, Inagua, Long Island, San Salvador and Walker's Cay. So there are 680 chances left of oilier sundrenched islands in the Bahamas becoming the regular haunts of vacationers! "THERE'S a part of Britain so little known by Cana- dians that it might almost be on tbe dark side of the moon. It's almost tax-free. It's nearer Lo France than Britain. The Queen rules it not as Queen ot England but as the Duke of Normandy! It's the Channel Islands. Take Jersey, for instance, tbe biggest island in tbe group. The Jersey tax system is as mild as the climate, and not even millionaires pay more thsn 20 per cent. Consequently, Britain's over-taxed rich have settled on the island like flies on a jam bun. Its population already stands at and citizenship is increasingly dif- ficult to attain. Visions of liv- ing in a second Monaco haunt the natives: recent proposals to convert St. Helicr's Castle into a casino were indignantly quashed. For visitors to the island a good spot is Longucville Manor, an ivied Norman hall, prudent- ly updated century by century, and now an excellent hotel, with double rooms at about S15. Through an open window you may hear the tinkle of Pimm's No. 1 being served by the swim- ming pool. You may hire a limousine with chauffeur and drive com- pletely across the islands for under two dollars, but tbe best way to explore Jersey is to climb into a rented car, follow jour nose, and stop when you rrivc somewhere attractive, which is often. Maps will get you nowhere: the island is one large maze of country lanes. If you must reach somewhere in particular, use Alice's techni- que in Looking-Glass Land: head in the opposite direction. It works like a charm. If the road beneath your tires plunges suddenly away, do not be alarmed. You have merely left Jersey's central plateau and are descending towards one of its innumerable sandy bays. The most beautiful of these are St. Brelade's and the Royal Bay of Grouville, which is dominated by Mount Orgeui] Castle. This harmless looking fortress was built in 1109 to de- "end Jersey from France. It's a good place to laze, sandwich and cold beer in hand, and ad- mire the sight of miles of sun- lit sea. The west coast of Jersey is one enormous beach, where the rollers arc perfect and life- guards patrol the sands. Lovers of long windy walks will not be able to resist its four-mile con- crete ramp, built during the occupation of 1341-45. An hour and a quarter north of Jersey by hydrofoil lies Guernsey, Victor Hugo's "ile severe et douce." The capital, S't. Peter Port, stacked up above the harbor like palings round a pond, markets as many duty-free good tilings as St. Helier. within a smaller area, and many of the restau- rants arc in the gourmet class. The cobbled city square is lominaled by Les Halles Mar- ket, a delicate Victorian struc- ure full of fresh fruit and sea- !ood. Here ninety cents will buy a vast pink crab with seawater still wet on its back. Invest six 'urther cents in a lemon, re- urn to your holel, and britw .he kitchen to boil the crab for you. When it is served, crown it with sweet butter and ply your lemon. You can't eat bet- ter anywhere. At St. Peter Port is the world's smallest church.
