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.
