I caprtued this image today whilst in Ramsey, it generally depicts Ramsey’s Swing Bridge but if you look at the image you will see a few iconic landmarks from the North of the Isle of Man.
To the left of the image you can see St Pauls apartments which are the highest apartments on the Island, next to it is the beautiful St Paul’s Church.
In the centre of the image you can see Albert Tower which was erected to commemorate the visit to Ramsey of Prince Albert in September 1847, when he randomly walked up that hill on his visit to overview the town.
To the top right of the image you can see the second largest mountain on the island “North Barrule”

The remains of this trawler which sank in June 1927 when she was driven onto half tide rocks in South Ramsey Bay and broke up. The incident occured when the men aboard the Cevic were attempting to rescue the ship’s lifeboat, which had got into trouble. A flare was sent up and the Ramsey lifeboat was launched. All the crewmen were saved, but the Cevic sank!

I love the vibrant colours in this mural of Gary Johnson, the mural was painted by artist “Richie” in 2009 on the wall facing the TT Mountain Circuit at Murrays Motorcyle Museum at the Bungalow.
The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 32mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
I took this image on the 2nd July 2011, the image shows the beginning of the demolition of the rear side of the once grande hotel which gracefully overlooked the northern part of Ramsey Bay.
The hotel, which first opened in 1897 as the Ramsey Hydro, closed its doors for the last time in February 2009, click here for an image that I took of the front of the hotel in September 2004 – (click below image for larger view).
I will ensure that a picture of the replacement hotel is added to the site when it happens!

This memorial to the 26-times TT winner, who died while racing in Estonia in July 2000, is situated at the former Murray’s Motorcycle Museum at the Bungalow on the Mountain section of the world famous TT Course – (click image for larger view).
The statue was donated by helmet manufacturer Arai and is a twin to the statue in Joey’s hometown of Ballamoney.

I captured this vessel moored about a mile north off Ramsey Bay today (just off the Dog Mills in Bride) I am pretty sure she was sheltering from the severe gales that the Island is experiencing right now.
