How to watch a race!

Can you guess what these people are doing?
One of the most famous places to watch races in the IOM is at Ballaugh Bridge.  The racers have to go over a bump, which sends them flying in the air for a few seconds!  Exciting to watch.  So many people want to see it, that the crowds are huge!  If you get there too late, your only hope is to climb a ladder.
This is what it looks like.

Our next stop was the Sulby Hotel to watch the end of the race.
Race over, time for a pint with our new friend, Fred, from Manchester.
Wish we could have found something better for dinner, but the menus are limited during TT week.  We had to settle for a hamburger!

    that burger doesn't compare with your burgers ! See, I still remember. this one looks like a frozen, pre-made pattie

    With so many people coming over for the races I would have ditched the hamburgers and made more upscale meals for more $$$

    1. Not to mention, looks like somebody already took a bite of her bun Bob!

    2. It was a pre-fab (hopefully not tasted by the staff before leaving the kitchen). When it is late and you are hungry, you take what you can get! Can't wait for my own burgers (thank Bob, come back soon).
