It's very quiet over here .......

Happy Thursday ........

I hope you're all well.
We would have been in Florida this week if the world hadn't been in lockdown, and ...... our little island would have been getting busier by the day with the IOM TT.
It would have been Practice Week this week ....... the roar of the bikes and the atmosphere would have been building nicely but, there'll be none of this going on unfortunately


Instead, it's all very quiet ...... no visitors, and no extra motorbikes!   But at least the sun was shining.


I say was, because it looks like the glorious weather is about to change ........ just in time for the weekend! 
Of course the weather was going to change ..... as of this week restaurants and cafes on the island have been allowed to open up and serve food ...... al fresco! 
Not everywhere is preparing open, but those with outdoor areas are getting ready to serve food and drink again ........ outside!  It's nice to see local businesses getting back to some sort of normality.
Oh .... and our McDonalds (we only have the one on island) caused absolute chaos yesterday when they opened their drive thru.  I believe there were queues of upto two hours, and longer,  just to get a burger!  It would have been easier to go to the butchers, buy the meat and make your own!

The islands restrictions continue to lift slowly ..... we haven't had any new cases of the virus since May 20th, and it was announced yesterday that we currently have no active cases on the island ..... yeah!! 
We're still being very careful though .... our borders remain closed, and there's no large gatherings allowed ...... although I don't think the campsite we were on at the weekend were sticking to that particular regulation ....... it was VERY BUSY!!!

We were in Kirk Michael this time, at Glen Wyllin.  A lovely big campsite, close to the sea,  and the weather was fantastic.

We watched the sunset on the beach ........



 Lauren and the little man joined us for the afternoon ......


And I did a little bit of outdoor cooking ......


Day 2 and the whole family joined us ......


So we spent the day at the beach ......



I even got my feet wet ......


No camping in the van this weekend as the weather's not looking too great.  Hopefully I'll get to spend some time in the craft room instead.

Thanks for popping by ........ enjoy the rest of your day

Cheerio until next time .......
