The Isle of Man -Day 2

This morning we drove to Port Erin to catch the steam train to Douglas.

We used our ‘Go Explore’ tickets which allow unlimited travel on all trains and buses for a period of 5 days.

At Douglas station we saw the platform for Isle of Man pupils of Hogwarts.

We visited the Manx Museum before getting the train back to Port Erin.

Manx cats have no tails, this one is an exhibit in the museum.

We had a drive to the southern end of the island, pausing to allow a herd of cows to go past!

A smaller island, the Calf of Man, is situated at the southern tip. More about this later in the week hopefully.

Back at our cottage we had time for a laze in the hot tub before dinner.

More tomorrow,
