After a day of driving around the island, Nick and I wandered down to the Douglas waterfront. The mile-long promenade belies the city’s history as a pre WW II seaside vacation destination. As soon as cheap consumer flights to southern Spain became available Douglas lost it’s appeal.
During the TT, however, it is a hub for spectators. Stunt riders entertain well into the evening, while strings of lights give the area a carnival feeling.
