After waiting three months, my second visit to the Isle of Man in 2013 arrived suddenly. I packed my car with all that I needed and set out on the Sunday to drive to Liverpool, 208 miles north-west, at 11.30am, collecting a tank of petrol at my local garage. By noon I was on the M40 ...
By 4.00pm I was in Liverpool at the Dockside and decided to go to the Crowne Plaza for refreshments.

I was first in the queue so I was able to get up top so I can easily access the lounge area. I took my seat in the Niarbyl Lounge.
We docked in Douglas and I was last off the Ferry.
