The Isle of Man – Day 6

We had a drive across the hills seeing some of the sights we glimpsed from the tram yesterday.

The largest reservoir on the island, the Sulby Reservoir, opened in July 1983.
We carried on into Ramsey.
A steel arched swing bridge, opened in 1892, 64m long, crosses the River Sulby at the entrance to the harbour.

We watched the bridge swing open.

We had lunch overlooking the bridge, then drove to Laxey. Due to Covid the Laxey wheel has been closed to visitors until now. Today it was open for a private group but on Friday it opens to the public, so we will be back!

We tried to visit the Knockaloe Centre, just down the road from our cottage, but found this notice on the door …

Tomorrow is our last full day on the island. Fingers crossed for a calm day tomorrow!
