Ah, don't you just love computers and 'cyber life'! Just when I thought I could post every day, the wireless internet connection on my net book died. Two days later and 50 UK pounds lighter, I am back in business.
Other than the motorcycle racing (which is the main reason we are here), one of the things on my IOM bucket list is to visit as many Glens as I could. There are 17 of these fabulous places, each of which offers different degrees of difficulty to visit. Some are meandering walking paths, while others require a need for good physical fitness (and hiking boots!). There are trails, paths, forests full of vegetation and a few with the reward of stunning waterfalls at the end!
The first we visited was Glen Maye which covers 11.5 acres. Each Glen has been rated by degrees of difficulty and she was considered moderate. Stairs were carved though the forest for ease of descent to our first 'waterfall'.
The rush of water over the millennium could be seen by the gorge that had carved its way to the sea.
The following day was spent visiting Port Erin, which is the town that can be seen from our cottage. In its hayday, it was THE spot to visit by the city elite of the Victoria era. The fresh country air and the sandy beaches drew thousands of visitors from the mainland (England) each summer.
More forks in road to travel, just around the corner!
