The remains of Passages which ran aground close to Jurby Head on 3rd December 1931.

A word of warning to anyone taking pictures of this subject the tide needs to be well out and caution is advised on the speed of the turning tide!

The first image is taken at the Isle of Man Flower Festival at the quaint Cronk Church in Ballaugh, there is a sort of alternative festival going on also at Jurby Church with lots of knitted flowers and characters like these guys in image two, I must say the ham sandwiches look nice 🙂

This famous Pub on the TT Course also holds a little history of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley who it appears lived for a short time at the Glen Mooar Inn which was on the site of the now present Hotel.

A couple of very old Isle of Man Buses awaiting restoration at the Jurby Transport Museum, I have to say that the guys up there are doing a fantastic job in maintaining our heritage for all to see, well worth a trip up there.

Isle of Man Road Services 697 HMN © Peter KilleyWent up to the Jurby Transport Museum on Sunday (16/10/11) to have a look at the stock of vintage transport that are on show, I have to say that the guys up there are doing a fantastic job in maintaining our heritage for all to see.

697 HMN was one of three Leyland Leopard buses built in April 1967 for Isle of Man Road Services Ltd. Originally fitted with 41 coach seats, it entered service on 13 June and completed its public service on the 8th February 1986.

This bus has been restored to an absolute pristine condition and I would recommend a trip up to Jurby to see all the fantastic exhibits.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 18mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Captured this image today whilst travelling from Peel to Ramsey of the sandy West coastline of the Island from Kirk Michael up to Jurby Head, with the evidence of coastal erosion quite prominent.

You can also see in the top left of the image the white spire of Jurby Church.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 90mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
