New Years Day Dips 2012

On New Years Day it is traditional to go for a dip in the sea to raise money for a variety of charities. The dips take place all over the Island but the images below are from Chapel Beach in Port St Mary (images 1-3) and Port St Mary inner harbour (images 4-6). Chapel Beach dip was at about 12.45 and the Port St Mary one was around 13.30. The day started of nice and sunny but very cold and as we went to the Port St Mary dip the weather had turned cloudy and was freezing, we were cold just watching them.
Well done to all those brave people who took part 😉

Port St Mary Harbour

Port St Mary is such a lovely little harbour and on a sunny day, any time of the year, its so pretty and quaint.
Captured this image on a sunny Sunday afternoon whilst walking to the Breakwater to join the famous Queenie festival which is held every year to celebrate the Queen Scallop, locally known as the Queenie. They are fished from waters around the Isle of Man and have become a very popular food which can be cooked in a variety of ways.

Took this image whilst walking around Cregneash Village Folk Museum on a lovely May afternoon. Cregneash is a living museum which was set up in 1938, when Harry Kelly’s cottage was restored and opened up to the public. This village is a site of Manx Traditions and way of life.
