The Whistle Stop

We offered to give our guests a lift down to Port Erin this morning as they wanted to take the steam train into Douglas.  They had travelled over here yesterday on their bikes but wanted a day on the trains.

Once we arrived we found that they had an hour to wait for the next departure  so they invited us for a coffee to while away some time.  We popped into the Whistle Stop cafe on the station platform and enjoyed some very good coffee and a chat.

Two lovely fellas, mature bikers with a love of all things mechanical.  I, of course, was a bit of a spare part in most of their conversations but I enjoyed their company.

  1. We have had 2 holidays on the Isle of Man, both years ago and both times went on that train. We loved everything about the Island.

  2. Life sounds to go at a much more leisurely pace over there - lucky you.

    1. It is a relatively safe and peaceful place to live, for the time being anyway.
