The weather took a turn for the worse overnight. When we woke up in the cottage this morning, there wasn't much of a view.
Luckily the host didn't need us to check out straightaway, so we were able to have a relaxed start to the day and wait for the weather to dry up a bit. Once it did we had a few hours spare before we needed to go our separate ways, so we decided to drive back down the coast to Peel, which we'd really enjoyed visiting on Saturday.
We didn't go into the castle today but we realised there was a little walk you could do around the walls of it, which we'd missed on Saturday.
As we walked we had some lovely views of the coast...
...and back towards the town of Peel.
The weather still wasn't great, but at least it wasn't pouring with rain
From Peel we drove across to Douglas, on the opposite side of the island. The weather wasn't any sunnier there!
Tim had to head off to the ferry terminal, to catch a ferry back to Liverpool at 3pm. Luckily this time around he had plenty of time
I went to check into my hotel, where I'm staying with work until Thursday. It's on the seafront, which is nice.
The room itself is fine, with a bed...
...and desk area.
I was quite excited to hear it had a sea view... but I wasn't prepared when I pulled back the curtains to see this slightly scary statue of a raven right outside my window I guess maybe it's there to scare off other birds?
Even if the weather hasn't been perfect today, it's been a fun weekend and a nice treat to get an extra bank holiday this May
