Well we're here on the Isle of Man. We have spent four days here, absorbing the culture, and are preparing to head out for the ferry to Liverpool in the morning. We hope the ride to Britan is smoother than the ride from Dublin. Jay almost lost her cookies on the way here.

So far our stay here has been free thanks to an incompetent park attendant who hasn't asked for any fees. We spent one day travelling all over the island by electric rail, steam rail, horse tram, and by a very cool three railed electric mountain railcar. We can't post pictures of these yet... but the're soon to come! We also checked out the museum, which was suprisingly huge. I (Jay) even looked up some family history at the graveyard and the historical archives. Nothing definitive, but I did find a will that may have belonged to an ancestor of mine from 1718!

On to Liverpool tomorrow for one night, and then to London to meet up with Chris and Jim again before they head back to Canada.
