After a big shopping in Douglas, the Skipper picked up a hired car for the day and set off round the IOM’s five Marilyns – Snaefell, Slieau Freoghane, South Barrule , Mull Hill and Bradda Hill. The morning of Fin & J’s arrival on the Liverpool ferry was wet (the first rain in a fortnight) but good weather then returned for the rest of our visit. Peel was busy over Easter weekend, with boat trips, a re-enactment at the castle and hill and road races. One afternoon the Skipper stood on a knoll above the harbour for a while, watching the swing bridge open and boats come and go, and was apparently dubbed ‘Statue Man’ by the crowd below. It was a surprise to be accosted by a group of young women demanding to be photographed with ‘Statue Man’!
