Isle of Man - October 3, 2008

Early this morning, QE2 made a first ever pass by Douglas Bay on the Isle of Man.  Ryan did not make it up for this event, despite my sales pitch that this was THE island that the author of the Thomas the Tank Engine based his stories on.  It was also very cold with the headwind.  QE2 slowed dramatically at the harbor and then followed the coastline for a bit, then swung around and headed for Liverpool.  We were treated to a spectacular sunrise as a reward for getting up so early and braving the cold.
