After 36 hours of travel, we have finally arrived in the IOM. The clouds over
the Irish Sea were breathtaking!
The winds were in our favour, giving us a panoramic view of
Port Erin & Port St. Mary as we flew in.
First stop, dinner at The Station Hotel and Pub
The manager, John, had my lamb shanks waiting for me.
We were joined by our friends Barbara and Eric who run a fabulous B&B at their Edwardian home, West Lodge B&B
We spent our first night in Ballabeg. The garden and view were gorgeous!
After a well needed night of sleep, we strolled down to Port Erin harbour.
Only on this side of the pond can you find BAKEWELL TARTS. I gave it the starring roll in this photo.
My Somerset friend, Christine will laugh knowing that my better-half almost had to fight a bird to enjoy his tart.
The bird lost!
