I’m posting this story here as a portfolio piece mainly for the “Travel Writing” #CultureTrav Twitter chat for July 30, 2015.  It’s a story I wrote for a travel writing class at UVic in the spring of 2014 reflecting on a day trip to Jersey with my mom and aunt in 2011 (I was working in Normandy at the time).  The requirements for the assignment included keeping it under 500 words and having more than one character in it (I think that was one of the requirements, I actually forget now…).  Hope you like it!

Note: Being a very literal guy, I took the postcard story to the next level by including a vintage postcard that I have in my personal collection of the actual St. Helier’s harbour where my story took place.
