Douglas Promenade

These properties were originally laid on the lawns of the Castlemona Hotel.

They are dated circa 1840 and I particularly like the old style architecture on these buildings, namely the arched doorways, the window pediments above the first floor windows and the old cast iron balconies that remain on some of these Victorian properties.

Popped down to take some images of this organised walk to the Tower of Refuge tonight, there were literally thousands of people queuing to walk out to the Tower at low tide, I just took some images from the Promenade walkway (basically because I could not be bothered queuing and it was starting to rain).

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

On Saturday 20th Nick and myself took Ted for the longest walk of his 13 week old life along Douglas Promenade 🙂

Ted loved the walk but as we discovered he has some dislikes as well!

Basically as you can imagine there are lots of things happening on the Promenade and Ted soon found that he did not like waste bins, buses, horse trams and anyone pushing a pram, they were all big monsters to him and all he wanted was picking up whenever these situations arose.

Anyway we took Ted from Summerland to the Castlemona shops and we had to turn around because the rain started to pour down, much to the joy of cocky little Ted 🙂

Nick has has now taught Ted to sit properly and he even raises his right paw (high 5) when he gets a treat for doing something right, which unfortunately is not that often!!

More about Ted the Border Terrorist soon 🙂

Douglas Corporation Horse Trams are now in their 145th year of operation.

It is universally acknowledged that they are the oldest operating horse drawn tramway system in the world.

These three images depict an open topped single decked tram, a covered single decked tram and the unique double decked horse tram – (click images for larger view).
