Inside the Castle Rushen

The three of us visited the Castle Rushen in Castletown and took a nice tour of the insides. It’s a very well preserved castle and it is my second time there.

The castle was founded by Norse Kings to guard the Silverburn River and saw most of its growth between the 13th and 16th centuries. It was partially destroyed by Robert the Bruce in 1313 and subsequently rebuilt by other rulers that did not have broadband access and must have been quite bored.

Here are a few pictures from before and after the tour:

The Beach at Groudle Glen

Here is a picture I took after I managed to get my circa 1950′s British bike down to the beach area. Right after that, I figured out that the bike really only goes downhill. This is the sort of thing you wish you had figured out before you went down that hill.

It’s Not for Girls and other interesting foodstuffs

We took a bus to Castletown and ended up with some extra time so we went into a local grocery store to see what kind of crazy items they had inside. It’s always strange being in another English-speaking country but with slightly different consumer products. It sometimes makes me feel like I am in a parallel universe.

Here is an interesting candy bar whose tagline appears to cut out about 50% of the market:

No Women Allowed

Here is a Kit Kat bar that has actually been renamed to a rather cumbersome web address:

Kit Kat Co Uk

Here is Will – he has Nice Biscuits:

And this is some honey that must be made by some distant relative of mine:

Ratcliff Honey

I like the tagline on the one below…so mysterious:

Eastern

And then here is a Cadbury bar filled with a very sketchy looking pink substance:

Turkish Delight
