Isle of Man Candy











Yesterday we took the electric train to the top of Snaefell, the highest peak in the Isle of Man (It means Snow Mountain, but as it’s July, there was no snow 🙂 ).  It was a beautiful, clear day and we could see for miles.  It was sooooooooooooo beautiful.  And a lot easier than walking up.  The lady in the cafe at the top was kinda cranky, but we had a nice cup of tea anyway.  Everyone visiting the Isle of Man should deffo make the trip!   Sorry this pic doesn’t begin to capture the beauty.

{J f, 2006}   Resplendent Ramsey

Yesteday the bloke and I skived off and took the electric railway up to Ramsey, from Douglas. It was a beautiful day and the scenery along the coast was awesome.  I took loads of pix. We strolled around Ramsey town centre and poked through some of the “antique” shops.  They have junk mostly.  Isabels Curiosity Shop had some very lovely things, however. 

We had our lunch at the Harbour Bistro on the East Quay and the food was soooooooooooo good.  I had a fantastic fish cake and the bloke had a crabmeat sandwich which he enjoyed a lot.  We were prob. 40 years younger than all the other customers.  Maybe Tueday is OAP day at the Harbour Bistro?  I dunno…but we we had a nice time anyway.  Tynwald Day

Today is Tynwald Day…the Isle of Man’s National Day.  Everyone takes the day off and heads down the pub. We’ll likely do the same.
