A highlight of the middle weekend was a visit to the Open Air Service at Kirk Braddan which was very well attended and we sang the hymns as bikes went past on the road nearby...This was before Mad Sunday became another highlight but we still had a constant stream going round
In general one must visit all of the glens to get the feeling I still have about them.
I like the old capital, Castletown, which deserves a morning of exploration, especially the castle itself.
Laxey Wheel is always a place to head for and now they have the other wheel and the little train here we have another reason to while away a morning or afternoon before dashing back in time for practice . If you have a full day free you can leap aboard the MER up to the top of Snaefell to see the seven kingdoms but it must be a clear sunny day.
I like to visit Maughold and Maughold Head taking in all of the other interesting things on the way there.
Visit King Orrys grave and the stone circles.
My favourite road in the A36 which goes from Port St Mary up to St Johns....Some great views and a wonderful winding road....At St Johns turn left and go to Peel, see the House of Manannan and have Queenies at the sea front restaurant.
Try to find the Montpelier Plantation with its little derelict cottages - Wonderful subjects for photographs.
