A lovely walk around Langness Peninsula today and I came across this inscribed rock with the words, ALL – 1853 – LOST – PROVIDER.

With a little bit of research I found that the Provider was a Schooner bound from Liverpool to Glasgow in 1853 with a cargo of salt – The Master and 3 crew were all lost and the Schooner wrecked just beyond these rocks at Langness.

This little Turtle Dove has been hanging around Fort Island for the last few days, the Turtle Dove is a relatively rare bird for the Isla of Man and it’s the first time I have ever seen one.
