Trying to sleep last night was nie on impossible due to the herd of elephants stomping around on the floor above. Then when it did go quiet the Chinese restaurant next to the hotel started with their deliveries and then to top that we suddenly became aware of a very bad smell (like blocked drains) permeating throughout the room (no it wasn't Ian or me) which really was very unpleasant. So first thing this morning we had a word with the receptionist and asked for the drains to be looked at. Sure enough on our return from the trip to Peel (more later) the room had a lovely fresh smell about it so keeping fingers crossed we have no more smelly sleepless nights. Cant guarantee the elephants though!!
So the trip to Peel took all of 30 minuets. The Island only measures 13 miles across it's width and is near as dam it, 35 miles long so nowhere will take any length of time. After a drizzly start the sun came out in time to welcome us to Peels town center. Loads to do at Peel and not enough time to do it all so we plumped for the House of Manannan the Islands Celtic, Viking and maritime heritage museum and a tour round Peel castle. Time went to quick but we managed to see most of our chosen attractions. So now for the photos,
