Set out from the hotel in the dry, got to Douglas station in the dry, boarded the steam train in the dry, got to our destination at Castletown and alighted in almost horizontal rain! A ten minute walk to the town center and not an inch of us was dry! First stop find the castle and get under cover. Then found out it didnt open till 11am so made a dash for the bus shelter where we stayed for the next 15 minutes. When we did get into the castle and the warm Ians glasses misted up and the steam rose from our coats. Still we spent a very pleasent 2 hours looking round and by the time we left most of our clothing had dried.
