After a two year hiatus, this weekend marks the start of the 2022 TT Festival.
We have already starting seeing the earlybird fans, browsing the beer aisles in the supermarket, distinctive in their motorbike leathers and T shirts emblazoned with previous years' TT logos.
I did a morning shift today, helping out at the charity shop, and there were quite a few visitors in looking for bargains. It was great to chat to them and they seemed pleased to be back.
The campsites have been slowly filling up and the sound of motorbikes can be heard as they roar up the mountain section of the course just behind us.
Just before it all kicks off, we also have the S9 Supercar club over this week with their 50 eye-catching motors to display. Apparently worth £15 million in total.
Petrol head heaven.
