Douglas is set on a small bay, and the buildings on the curving seafront are of a very elegant Victorian design. In the bay there is a small rocky outcrop, and on the outcrop is a perfect little castle. The Tower of Refuge was built by Sir William Hillary who went on to found the RNLI, as a refuge for shipwrecked sailors while they waited for rescue.
I even got to see the Governor of the Island, as he came out of the Theatre after a performance of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", if he'd spotted me I'm sure he would have said hello!
While in Douglas I popped into "Copperfields Tea Shop and Restaurant", an interesting place that appears to be world famous. It has a lot of "nick nacks" scattered around - all I can say is that a toasted cheese sandwich and a glass of cola is rather expensive.
