Looks very nice!

I live on a rock in the sea as well.

How would you usually get to the mainland? Via ferry by the looks of it.

yeah, we have a choice of 2 ferry routes. 1 takes about 35mins, the other takes about 2mins (lands you in middle of no where though)

Jersey (in the English Channel, for benefit of those in the US).

Nearest mainland is France, although we haven't been French territory for a long time. So, the mainland today is the UK even though it is much further away.

I did live just to the north London for about 8 years, but I'm back on Alcatraz now. LOL

How large an island, in terms of width by length do you each live upon?

9 x 5 miles, so 45 sq. miles. Population is about 88,000.

Good Lord! Do you have a means to keep all the people from going to the same side of the island at the same time... Do Islands actually tip if you do?

How do you all earn a living?

Well, Manhattan is 23 sq miles with a population of 1.5 million!

We all try to stay on one side or atleast most of us do, that way we can still have unspoilt country side.

The island has its own government and is self funded. I think about 65% of the economy comes from the finance sector. It's an international off-shore financial center, like the Bahamas for example.

LOL!

I have no involvement in that, I am pleased to say!

I did get sun burnt today from standing on top of a scaffold breaking up the top of a granite wall so that we can replace the very old wooden lintels with concrete ones. It was a very hot sunny day and my back is on fire now.

Just helping a mate who is a builder. He is converting a barn into a 3 bed cottage. There's not much of it left now, literally just the 4 walls. We have demolished the rest of it.

Actually that was "SUM" burned, so don't let them tell you that you ignored my perfectly good advice to avoid getting burnt!

You just ignored your misunderstanding of my perfectly good advice that... alas... arrived to late to be of any real benefit to you!

What would a home for an average Joe such as myself cost on your little retreat from financial respectability?
