Mad Sunday, Isle of Man TT - Pink Panther, of course

                       Fancy dress, optional.....

.....but a lap of the famous Isle of Man TT course isn't for tourists and locals. It's all part of the two week Road Races fun, some for charity, some just for the hell of it.  Motorbikes as far as the eye can see down Road, Lezayre turrning into Parliament Square. For more bikers in costume click here.

Where the brook meets the sea

                  Here. Behind me is the beach

If you follow the path upwards through Ballure Glen across the road and further upwards you'll reach the source of the brook, Ballure Reservoir. Behind me is the beach and the brook becomes a trickle until it eventually meets the Irish Sea. At high tide, you can't enter the the Glen via the beach, so always best to check those tide times.

Gimme Shelter

from the rain, because it's not always blue skies

A Saturday photo. The place where I sit before photographing Ramsey Rugby, and the half time break. The beginning of the season is around late August each year, and blue skies abound. Fast forward a few months and winter rugby games are accompanied with torrential rain, and howling gales. This is where I seek shelter. This bench nestled within a brick structure on Mooragh Promenade, overlooking the Irish Sea. There is more than one of these shelters along the promenade, but this is the one right behind the rugby pitch. Though with the horizontal rain, it's not always as sheltering as it should be. Theme day on the blog today, with all the other City Daily bloggers is Shelter.
