This beautiful Church in Onchan was built in 1833 and is dedicated to St. Peter

A little bit of trivia;  The rain drip stones (I am sure that terminology is wrong) above the louvered openings in the Bell Tower are constructed with headstones and if you look up at them you can see names and inscriptions on them!

Spotted the Dublin registered Tug “Deilginis” sitting off the Tower of Refuge in Douglas Bay last week.

I am pretty sure she was accompanying the Excalibur jack-up barge that was also sheltering in the Bay.

Rose Cottage in Regaby, and the interesting aspect of this beautiful Manx Cottage is the gate pillar and the cast hand of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley.  Measured from floor to the tip of the hand it measures 7’11” which is exactly the same height of the Manx Giant, feel free to get in touch if you know the connection between Rose Cottage and Arthur Caley the Manx Giant.

Well what a sunny fantastic Sunday here on the Isle of Man so we took Ted up to Maughold and walked from the front door of Maughold Church to the beach at the foot of  ‘Gob ny Port Mooar’!

Firstly we were confronted by about 50 sheep being rounded up and being moved from one field to another, Ted was not happy and very quiet seeing all these white 4 legged things running up the footpath that he was walking on!

The walk was wonderful and sometimes a little scary on the headland down to the beach due to the steepness and slippery conditions.

Ted and Nick loved it and we spent a pleasurable hour or so on the beach and the headlands.

What a fantastic way to spend our Sunday afternoon and we were back home around two or so hours later.
