A lovely trip out on my Mountain Bike yesterday, started at the Ayres and then up the shore line to the Point of Ayre where I was treated to this vibrant Manx Heater and Gorse in full bloom.

Looovelly!!! Sunny days are always fun and beeee!
The heather looks to be doing very well this year.
I love this combination of low gorse and heather at the Point of Ayre. The photographer from Jarrolds Printers in Norwich who used to come over to take photographs for the holiday guide said it was a combination that you rarely saw elsewhere.
I cycled from my brother’s house in Ballaugh to the Point of Ayre a couple of years ago when I was over on holiday and realised when I got there that there is nowhere to sit – unlike the Sound which has more seats that anyone ever uses. It’s OK if you come in a car you can sis in the car if you are not walking around, but I was ready for a rest and the grass was too wet to sit on. So I’d like there to be a campaign to get a couple of benches supplied to the Point of Ayre. The family say they will donate one in my memory after I die – but I’d like one sooner than that so that I get the benefit of it.
