Last week we enjoyed glorious sunny weather out of the Isle of Man. After a day relaxing with a friend we set off on a five day walk between B&B’s on the coast of the Island. We started from Ramsey on the East coast, and immediately headed inland – because on day one we followed the ‘Millenium Way’ to the outskirts of Douglas. That stretch of coast ‘path’ is in fact more that 50% on tarmac. No fun if you are carrying a pack, albeit only a 50L pack. It was great to see the hilly interior, and I could hardly beleive that on an official long distance path…. ….we did not see a single soul all day, until we ordered a beer from the girl behind the bar in Crosby at the end of the day!
The above picture is to whet your appetite – the others are on Flikr.
It was a great walk, and whilst much on the island is rather expensive, both beer and B&B’s cost the same or slightly less than on the mainland.
