Day 4: Boat trip cancelled

Today we were suposed to go out to the Calf of man and Chicken Rock lighthouse but because of the wind the sea was too rough to get us out which I was really disapointed about but unfortunately nothing to do about it.

So we decided to find a way to get as close to the lighthouse from ashore to get a few shots of the lighthouse despite not getting out. And we were lucky we found a place where we could see the Chicken Rock lighthouse a bit! But unfortunately no luck for those of the Calf of Man lighthouses. But because of the bad weather (rain) we had to go back in time before we had the rain on us. But we were not back in time before the rain.

Day 3: Calf of Man

So far the boat trip to the calf of man and chicken rock lighthouse was planned for tomorrow as that would be the better day so far.

So today we went to do some sightseeing around the south of the isle of man.

We first went to the Sound Cafe and visitor centre to have a look at the Island. We had hoped to catch a glimp of the lighthouses but unfortunately no real luck. We did some more walking.

In the afternoon we went to walk to Milners’Tower and relaxed a bit in the evening.

Day 2: Getting to the Isle of Man

Today we took the 11 AM ferry to the Isle of Man from liverpool. It was a sunny day. At 2 PM we arrived at the Douglas harbour. From here our lighthouse hunting trip could really begin.

The first stop was the Douglas Head Lighthouse.

From there up to the Langeness lighthouse and then to Port Erin, where we are staying

Day 1: Getting across the channel

Today we had to get up early as we are going to take the 10 AM ferry at Duinkerken. The day started rainy. We arrived well at the Dover and from here our trip to Liverpool could begin.

It took us 2hrs longer then planned because of a lot of traffic jams. In the evening after checking in in our b&b we went to the Hale Head lighthouse. It was raining so didn’t spent too much time out there!

Tomorrow we are going to the Isle of Man.
