Growing up on Jersey in the Channel Islands for the first eighteen years of my life, I never realised how lucky I was to experience being an islander. I often crave to return to my island when I think about the expanse of sand dunes in St. Ouen and the sunsets after BBQ’s with my family.
On reflection, a great many of these memories feature a very specific character, the Jersey green lizard. Acting as Jersey’s miniature dragon, the green lizard has become a catalyst for my childhood memories.
