A COTTAGE NESTLES IN ITS QUIET VALLEY Just beyond the garden and red tile-roofed home, a road leads down to Petit Bot Bay, one of the popular inlets on the south side of the island. The beach is well patronized on week ends and "'early closing days," which are Thursdays in Guernsey. Fermain Bay, on the east, and numerous inlets on the south and west coasts also are frequented by bathers. Four of five principal dairy cattle breeds in the United States originated in the North Sea region. Guernsey's neighbor, Jersey, furnished the type that bears its name; Holstein-Friesians developed in the Netherlands, and the Ayreshires came from Scotland.
