Our day started with a visit to the southern part of the island, to view the Calf of Man.
A certain bovine and grazing sheep were keeping a close eye on me!
As this is Motorcycle week in the IOM, helmets must be worn while on the bikes, however, this couple decided they should be worn at all times!
 Port St. Mary was having a vintage farm fair, with plenty of steam engines and old motoring vehicles.

For the Cruickshanks! 
 We ended the day at the Shore Hotel for a local delicacy, Queenies, 
which is a small sweet scallop.
Served with linguini in garlic butter sauce; yummy!
Tomorrow: back to the races!


  1. B:

    when I was little we didn't have a family car. I remember the whole family, taking the bus everywhere. Then one day my Dad bought a car. I think it was a 1953 Morris, just like in your photos. It must have been a 4 door. I remember having to open the rear window and "Helping" the indicator arrow out so we could make right turns. It was a little arrow that was illuminated. Inside there was a string to pull

    A few years later my Uncle who was going to UBC bought a Red Morris Convertible. I still have a photo of it somewhere.

    as usually, your meal is making me hungry

    1. I love your story. I will to share it with my 'old british car' friends! I can just see your little hands outside of the window!
