On Our Travels With Darcy's Postcard Challenge - Isle Of Man

From where I lived in Whitehaven we could look across to the Isle of Man so for my page I choose the view we had but slightly closer. I included the coat of arms of the parliament there and the Laxey wheel  a site I visited on my only holiday there when I was 16! Of course I had to pay homage to the TT race so my pocket is a picture celebrating the centenary in 2007.
My postcard is of a Celtic Cross as these are found all over the island. It is a stamp I borrowed out of my daughter's collection but I do not know who made it. The border is from Tandy stamps. I stamped both  in Versamark ink and coloured with Pan Pastels.
Hard to believe we have made it to half way, go here if you would like to see the other postcards and travel tales.
