Beach Motocross & ATV races

We started our annual pilgrimage to the 'Isle of Man' from Toronto,
 with a hearty dinner (full of fat) at the airport.

Grilled Chicken & bacon
The clouds were so fluffy and picturesque
After 28 hours of traveling, we finally arrived! 
No visit to Port Erin is complete without a meal at our favourite place, The Station!
Grilled gammon steak with egg, mushy peas (had too) and chips
After dinner we were treated to fast paced Beach Motocross in Port  Erin

An they are off!
Can you imagine this happening at Sandbanks Provincial Park?

As there can be marine mishaps, the island relies heavily on the efforts of the 
'Royal National Lifeboat Institution' to provide rescues at sea.
Their mascot joined in the fun, to the delight of all the children!
A wonderful first day, then off for much needed sleep!


  1. Glad you made it safely - watching those bikes slide around in the sand is making me nervous now (but they were going fast!)

    1. Takes dirt-donking to a whole new level! Try not to get too sore!
