Isle of Man photo diary (part 2).


If you missed part 1 it's here!

Our next and final full day (last Saturday) saw us heading to the Royal Manx show to check out the best of the best from the people on the Isle of Man. We saw terrific turnips, creative crafts and good looking farm animals. We had a good nosy round the different tents to see who had won each category. My favourite tent was the pudding tent which housed an array of scones, cupcakes, cakes decorated with fondant icing and swiss rolls (to name just a few).

We walked round the rest of the show, stopping to say hello to the animals. A tiny little lamb with the most adorable underbite caught my eye, snoozing next to his mum.

After the show all that fresh air got the best of me and I had a nap on the sofa while the boys walked the dogs (Snowy and Peanut). We went out for dinner again that evening before another evening of games, beer, Big Bang Theory and carrot cake!

We flew home on the Sunday so had a steady morning and a big brunch of homemade pancakes with syrup, sausages (veggie for me), eggs and toast which went down a treat washed down with a big mug of tea.

I was sad to leave as we had a great time but hopefully we get to visit again soon.
