Isle of Man Candy











Yesterday we drove down south to Castletown and toured Castle Rushen. It was really worth the trip.  It’s soooooooo old….they think it was originally built around 1200 and all kinds of kings and lords have lived there.  They’ve done up some rooms to make the castle look like it did when kings lived there. Apparently they used to eat “pigg” and “pickl’d carrots”. Later it was used as a debtors prison and we saw some of the cells that people were kept in. 

It’s really well preserved. I’ve seen other castles in England, Wales and Ireland and none of them nearly as good as this one.  And the people working there are v friendly and know a lot about the castle. 

There is a nice little pub across the street to have a drinkie after the tour.  Lets hope the rain stops today!Castle Rushen
