Cormorants stretching their wings.

Saw these cormorants stretching their wings in Peel on the rocks next to the slipway on a nice summers day.

Off loading their catch of the day.

Whilst on Peel Breakwater having a walk and taking photos I was fascinated watching this fishing boat unloading his catch of the day, a full load of fresh crabs.

Inside the walls of Peel Castle.

Made the most of a beautiful sunny spring day by visiting Peel Castle. This Castle is situated on St Patricks Isle in Peel and used to be a place of worship before becoming the fort of Magnus Barefoot – an 11th century Viking King of Mann.
Inside the Castle walls there are the remains of St Patricks Church, The Round Tower and the crypt of the 13th century Cathedral of St German.
The Castle has extensive grounds and visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of Peel and beyond.
The Castle is also famous for being haunted by a large black dog called the Moddey Dhoo and there have been reports of sightings of a ghostly apparition of the black dog.
