Four northern churches.
A trip around yesterday afternoon, visiting St Jude's, Sandygate, Jurby
and Andreas churches. The weather started off rather dull and grey
for St Jude's and Sandygate, but inproved for the last two with a nice
sunset at Andreas. Nikon D7100 18/1/18

This morning was the
occasion of the last slipway launch of the current Douglas Lifeboat, the
'Sir William Hillary', named after the founder of the Royal National Lifeboat
Institution and a resident of Douglas. The lifeboat is being replaced
by a more modern boat, but will continue in service for a while yet, whilst
modifications are made to the slipway to accommodate the new vessel.

I'd originally intended
and planned for some drone flying in the St Jude's area and then on the
north west coast, but despite it being sunny in
Onchan, by the time
and reached the Bungalow there was thick cloud cover and at Sulby and Ballaugh
it was raining heavily! So I diverted so a
secondary site I'd wanted
to fly from, Lady Port on the west coast between Kirk Michael and Peel,
flying from the old Manx Northern Railway line.

On the way home I stopped
to take a few pictures at sunset and just after. Panasonic
