For such a small island,
The Isle of Man boasts fabulous scenery at every turn.
On our way back from the Wildlife Park, Christine and I stopped at Glen Wyllin to check out the coastline. It is on the west coast of the island and this is the view looking north.
Looking south, you can almost see the Cairn (monument on the hill on the far right) that sits it the backyard of the cottage we are renting
When we got back to the cottage,
the view up to the Cairn was breathtaking
The next day, we headed south the the Sound, also known as the Calf of Man. Even though the clouds were ominous, (and it did pour down an hour later), the views were worth it!
Here we have a family of seals checking out the visitors
...and this big guy basking on the rocks, keeping his distance
|a fissure teaming with life|
After a fun day of sightseeing, we headed home to share dinner with our island friends.
Caprese salad to start
followed by Sweet & Sour Chicken
with the finishing touch....homemade lemon meringue pie
A fabulous day, ending with a fun evening with friends
