Douglas Quay and Marina

This image shows Douglas Marina which was built in 2001 and was the first Marina for the Isle of Man, there is now another one in Peel. This Marina has really lifted the quayside as before it was built when the tide went out it left a silty and sad looking harbour but now there is constant water with beautiful yachts moared and on a sunny day the sun glistens of the sea. The Quayside has also been improved with new paving and seating to sit and watch the world and the yachts go by.

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.
