At the end of April, our daughter brought the Little Manxman over to see us and we rented a bungalow in Wales for a week.

In May we went home for the TT festival, we enjoyed the bikes, atmosphere, the racing, Red Arrows and one evening we had tickets for a Pink Floyd tribute act (Pigs on the Wing)at the Villa Marina.
|The Red Arrows buzzed our house on the way to display in Douglas harbour.|
I was out on my bike as often as I could, these days I can no longer endure the head down arse up wrist ache of a 150hp Fireblade(I'm nearer 70 than 60 now), this has been replaced by a sedate 47hp Honda 500X. The buzzy twin is great fun to ride and has a comfy riding position. Best of all I am getting an indicated 95.3 MPG.

I'm back on the boat now waiting for the first mate to return so we can get cruising.
