A beautiful trip around the most southerly part of the Isle of Man onboard Isle of Man Diving Charters beautiful boat Kirree Varrey, skippered by my friends, Thomas and Sarah Keggen.

I was treated to some wonderful views of Sugar Loaf Rock and all it’s wildlife, Chicken Rock Lighthouse which is the most southerly point of the Isle of Man and the rugged coastline of the Calf of Man and it’s once used lighthouses, then up the coast to Bradda Head Mines with a lovely stop off trip to Cow Harbour on the Calf of Man where Thomas and Sarah made us all a cup of tea, coffee and some lovely home made cake.

All in all a fantastic experience and one I would recommend to anyone wanting to view the Southern coastline of the Isle of Man.

Mr Makin from Peel (with permission).

I am going to compile some Black and White images over the forthcoming months of some very distinguished traditional, Manx people.

My first image is Mr Makin who owns a fish processing factory in Peel and I see him many times on Peel Breakwater picking up his produce (queenies and scallops).

Steam Train No 4 Caledonia at Kirk Michael – Manx Heritage Transport Festival 2018.

To mark the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the last train on the Northern Line, a locomotive (Caledonia) will be positioned on track outside an original Manx Northern Station building at Kirk Michael (now Kirk Michael Fire Station).

Kirk Michael Heritage Trust will be in the former station building with a photographic display focused on the Northern Line. This will be the first time since closure of the line in 1968 that a locomotive has visited the station.
Worth a look on Wednesday 25th July.

A nice walk around Laxey on Saturday.

Image 1 – Laxey Railway Station looking very tidy and pretty, Laxey Station is an intermediate station that serves electric trams running from Douglas to Ramsey and return and is the start of the Snaefell Mountain railway climb and descent.

Image 2 – A slightly different perspective from high above the Laxey Wheel in the hills at Agneash. The wheel was built in 1854 in order to drain the mines of water and was officially started by Lieutenant Governor Hope and it was named in honour of his wife “Lady Isabella”.

I just love this gorgeous house in Ballabeg, it is a credit to the owner, I am sure there must be some history regarding this property, I love the archway where the garage is, if anyone knows it’s history please do tell us.
