A Long Drive to Heysham

We’ve just arrived in the Isle of Man after a long day travelling on Wednesday. I had a meeting in Aberystwyth in the morning and then went for a run before we started travelling up. My run went surprisingly well considering the fact that I’m not feeling at all like a ‘triathlete’ at the moment....

Anna found some photos of me online from the recent Isle of Man End2End Mountain Bike Race – SO here they are. Most are from the Southern Chronicle, the one of me crossing the grassy field was posted to Picassa by someone.

Isle of Man 2012

Trip to the Isle of Man

As you can tell from recent posts our annual trip to the Isle of Man was a success. We drove from home to Liverpool on Wednesday afternoon and as usual arrived a couple of hours early for the boat so wandered around the newly refurbished dock front. It is much nicer than it used to...

Visiting Peel Castle 1

Isle of Man Castles and Heritage

Whilst on the Isle of Man this year we visited a couple of castles and tourist attractions. The good news is that as members of the National Trust, our National Trust card is accepted in Manx national Heritage sites giving us free entry. Free is always good but it actually means we enjoy them more....

Isle of Man End2End 2010 Photos

I wasn’t able to take photos of the Isle of Man End2End as I was competing in it (read my race report here). However, Anna and Morgan were out at various points on the course to support and whilst they were there they took a load of photos – They may well have managed a...
