Skidmarks Little Island: Short Photo Report

Just thought I share a few pics from a brief few hours myself and Ben (British767) spent on the Isle of Man on Tuesday. Andy (Skidmarks) very kindly arranged to take a day off work to help show us around some of the island. Unfortunately, bad weather earlier in the morning at LBA meant that our little Let-410 flight with Manx2 was 2 hours late, only giving us about 4 and a half hours to look around the island, but Andy did a sterling job and what he doesn't know about the island ain't worth knowing about!

Hope you like the pics, go to the Isle of Man and see Andy if you can, we're trying to get him on commission with the Isle of Man Tourist Board for attracting visitors, to help boost his pension fund!  Wink

First stop, the Manx Flyers Aero Club for lunch, and a great place for watching/photographing the arrivals and departures!

Andy never misses the opportunity for a snapshot!




Some of the lunchtime traffic:









After about an hour, we headed off to see a little more of the island. We were shown Jeremy Clarkson's house:

Entrance:



Mr Clarkson's humble abode (he owns all of it, not just the lighthouse!):



Then it was off to the attractive town of Castletown, which is where Andy lives:








Then a short drive to Cregneash:



Seals!



Onward to Costa Del Manx, also known as Port Erin.  Wink



And wherever you are on the island, the Manx flag is always proudly displayed:



The island's capital, Douglas, is also well worth a visit, along with the Laxey Wheel and mountain railway, but I didn't get chance on this occasion due to limited time.

Thanks again for being such a good host, Andy!  bigthumbsup

Don't you mean arrivaL / departurE - singular ?

And how was the Let ? Did any bits fall off when you landed ? And I suppose one might ask the same question about Andy

Nice! Me and a friend are planning to live in the Isle of Man next summer! Ive been there once a while ago and loved it, although I was addicted to the little speed boat lake! Also the steam engines were pretty good. Me and my friend are looking into finding jobs somewhere and the steam railay was the first place we thought of!

Well, thanks for the plug, Dave! Big grin

Glad you enjoyed your trip. Next time make it longer and we'll hit the rest of the island - you know, the other castle, Ramsey (god knows why), maybe Snaefell moutnain railway and even the Prom in Douglas!

And the same goes for anyone thinking of coming over. If I can get time off I'm only too willing to show people around.

Unless you're French/South African/Canadian when I'll just demonstrate the unique items of torture we have in the Castle museum! Big grin

Incidentally, the flag is a Triskellion and represents the ability of the Island to stand on its feet whatever happens. (and thats a long folk tale condensed into a few words! Big grin)

Probably a 747, however, taking off again, thats different! Big grin

Largest I've seen actually landing is the 757. We also have 737's, A.320's & 319's on various charters. Nimrods do frequent rollers but haven't landed as yet. I live in hope! Big grin

The ones where you have to sit with common people, and not be pampered, and actually be able to reach out and touch the seat in front of you ? I've heard of them, but frankly I have my doubts that such an unspeakably sordid practise could exist in this day and age. Surely there must be laws against it.

It's all part of the CIA prison scheme. That plane is really transporting criminals and terrorists for torture on the island.

Said torture consists of spending a week in Douglas, bored to sorry death, and watching the Isle of Man's own soap opera, 'Douglas Dilemmas', wherein the main character wonders whether to cross the road before or after the milk float trundles past, for fear of being run over.

Exactly right - should be banned if you ask me. To think people might fly on these things - I mean you don't even get FF miles to add towards reaching Xirconium status or anything.

I hear that last last year's Christmas cliffhanger was a confrontation between beloved old-timer Andy Skidmarks and a lost German tourist over parking in the mobile library parking spot. "You can't park that 'ere, mate" was the oft-quoted tagline for the episode, rebroadcast 27 times due to popular demand in the following weeks. I believe t-shirts were printed...

There are instruments of torture in the Castle Museum that would make your nuts retreat in terror!!

However, a worse torture is having to spend a night in Foxdale on your own.

I saw that one, what a classic, I believe you can get the DVD for 12p at the Douglas Oxfam.

The best bit was the part when the dog with the damaged paw stepped into an unmapped puddle in Quines Hill. It was good seeing all hell break loose, with the Isle of Man Rescue Trolley (sponsored by Tesco) being pushed by the Isle's resident aviation expert - Good ol' Andy.

Shame when he stood in that cow pat though.

 rotfl  Best episode ever ! High drama (when the trolly is blocked by that flock of sheep, I had to look away !), tempered with good old fashioned British humour. And good old Andy, he just scrapes it off his wellies, takes it home and puts it on his rhubarb. Aaaaah - talk about heart-warming !

Oh I see, you're still warm about that real-life hijacking on the Island...

That time when that passenger pigeon bound for the Douglas Horse Tram Terminus was forced to land at the industrial estate because of that freak tornado caused when 'Daisy' - the island's only cow, farted at an unscheduled moment.

It's all go over there eh!?

Actually my favourite episode was when Thora Hird came over to the island to open the summer fair. The bit when Andy got confused because he had thought it was going to be Douglas Hurd. the look on his face was just priceless.

I believe that was voted No.1 in the all time IOM comedy moments poll.
