RAMSEY TO MAUGHOLD


At last some someshine! While the rest of Britain has a snowy April we have had a wonderful day of mild sun. Not hot, still with a gentle breeze, but the best day we have had so far this year. At least the sunbathers thought so.

Ramsey isn't known for having the lovely beaches, that Port Erin, and Peel have( there are more, but just namechecked two), but this side of the pier, when the tides out does have a lovely stretch of beach. In the distance is Maughold(pronounced Mak old) a small village named after St Machaoi. Maughold Point, is the most easterly on the island, and the closest point to England.

A lovely place to visit, steeped in history, the Manx crosses, the IOOOAD church, the waterfall, and beacuse a certain actor called Johnny Depp stayed the when he filmed the Libertine.

It was a beautiful day.Very pretty as always. You really know how to show off the Isle Of Man to the world.

Thank you for the comments and links you gave me for the manx language - really interesting (I'm English too so not a Gaelic expert either, though I'd love to try to learn it as it looks so beautiful).

You've shown some fantastic photos the last few days. I'm really enjoying your blog!

I'm glad you noticed the crop. Doing more wide angle at the moment,it certainly suits the landcape.
