Isle of Man Candy

{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.
