Wow! How gorgeous!
Lovely picture of the Tower of Refuge. Makes me feel quite home sick. I grew up on the promenade. As for the Manx being dispirited, you should try visiting in summer during nice weather, you will find us to be a friendly cheery people.
Have to get some family to take you out for some fun. Then you will get to know the real Manxman. Thankyou for all the pictures I love them all.
