Isle of Man Tour-Day 4

 

Texel Sheep

Today, as planned, we visited the Isle of Man's Southern District Agricultural Show which was held conveniently close to our base at Douglas, the island's capital.

Isle of Man Pipe Band 

Whilst held at a farm and with an underlying agricultural theme participants included a wide range of quasi related businesses ranging from the local radio sttaion to craft people and even the army reserve. The island's Pipe Band gave an impressive performance. Images and videos herein tell the story.
