In the 5 years I've lived in Ramsey, this is the first time the bridge has had a new lick of paint. Don't panic Stephen, it's the same rich red and white colour scheme, just a glossy new coat for the old lady. Where then are the painters? The cones have appeared to cordon the rails off to the right, but no men at work to be found. Perhaps they have sloped off to the Laxey Blues Festival that has just got underway or been kidnapped by aliens? Perhaps they just saw the mad woman photographer and took flight. Who knows? One thing I do know though is the cones are on the wrong side! The freshly painted left side should have been cordoned off. Perhaps this was their little joke. Lots of left white gloss painted hands in Ramsey this week. Very manx.
As I mentioned above, the Laxey Blues Festival is this weekend. Local and international bands take over the town and simply play music from around noon until the early hours. Me and my camera will be there. I will try an capture an image, but I may just forget and enjoy the music.
