Isle of Man Candy

Yup!  It's true!  Just in time for TT Festival 2006, Basking sharks have arrived near the Isle of Man! I've heard of hammer heads, but motor heads?  There have been 25+ sightings of these creatures at the south end of the island, near Port Erin, Port St Mary and around the Calf of Man. They are harmless and kinda cute.  Let us know if you spot them!  new shark


{J f, 2006}   What a glorious day!

It's sooooooooo nice out today.  Everyone is in shorts and crop tops enjoying the sunshine. The birds are chirping and the bees are buzzing…what more can you ask for on a Sunday afternoon?  Well maybe  a trip to the beach?  That's one of great things about living in the Isle of Man…there are so many loverly beaches to hang out at. 

Today we are going to Peel Beach.  It's huge with lots of gorgeous soft sand.  It sits on a large bay on the west coast in the shadow of Peel Castle.  There is enough peeps around to make it interesting but it's not too crowded so we spread out on our blanket, slap on the Amber Solaire (BOGOF at Boots!) suntan lotion and give ourselves a jolly good baking.  I fall asleep.  Ouch! Do you think lobsters are this sore when they turn red?
