P had to make a trip down to the south of the island today to pick up a new (well, reconditioned second hand) laptop so we decided to make a morning of it.
First stop was Castletown for a coffee and a stroll around.
This is where we parked the car (on the quayside not in the water!)
After our short walk we drove on to Port Erin and the computer shop. It was good to see the young couple making a go of their small business, dealing in second hand, refurbished laptops and other computer equipment at very reasonable prices. He offered to download the software that P wanted and said it would be ready in an hour, so another walk was on the cards.
We walked along the coastal footpath to Bradda Glen then back down into town on the road, picking out which of the houses along the way we would like to move to when we can no longer manage our garden.
If you look at this bottom photo you can just see at the bottom left the little row of cottages with their gardens right on the beach.
You live in such a beautiful place, there are places I would like to live in if there is another incarnation.ReplyDelete
It does look good when the sun is shining Yael, but it looks different when the winter winds are howling and the rain is pouring!Delete
Rather than downsizing you could employ a gardener or tarmac the entire garden. I agree with Yael that The Isle of Man is indeed a beautiful place.ReplyDelete
I think the gardener option sounds best.Delete
Never been to IoM but have seen its downward pointing finger from the air once on a flight from Manchester to Belfast. We should try to visit soon.ReplyDelete
I will be happy to help out in any way if you do plan a visit. There is lots to see.Delete
