  1. Family off to North Berwick next week for a few days but will have to self isolate on return to the Island for 7 days and be tested (£50) or 14 days isolation - think east of Edinburgh is fairly clear of Covid19.
  2. Maybe they could be dropped off at your house and collected later?😷
  3. Very comfortable accommodation - had a few nights stay on Sunborn in Gibraltar https://www.sunborngibraltar.com/
  4. Wow.... yes ... I remeber those days very well......
  5. It was bound to happen....... https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/iom-records-first-case-of-covid-19-since-may/?fbclid=IwAR0VfEqaS0c-BMY78mi1Rx2FzVcAROeJ5O6rmYq7k45a2L4OuMH0tHV1g2M
  6. BenMyChree in dry dock Awaiting repairs to propeller
  7. The same as many underground parking in Spain. Car valeting underground while you go shopping is common - maybe due to the high temperatures outside during the day.
  8. Yes agreed - I assume those people poled were already working at home.
  9. I personally enjoy the sailing on the Ben more than the faster Manannan crossing. The Ben is presently having repairs done to a rudder so Manannan has become the passenger fill in for passengers who wish to leave the Island.
  10. A news report suggests that nine out of ten people prefer to continue working at home. Guess there are many reasons why this is the case....
  11. I wouldn't say the Island is "shut off from the rest of the world" (we have an air bridge with Guernsey 😄!!!) - normal arrivals of freight and food as usual. I am sure the Island at some stage will succumb to the virus again if as predicted it will still be here for the next four years.
  12. We are now close tom 100 days without any cases of Covid19 and back to normal way of life. Interesting that some folk are still trying to visit the Island though...... https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/couple-detained-by-police-for-entering-island-without-permission/
  13. This makes total sense to most of us but unfortunately it is the ones who refuse to follow the guidelines that will continue to spread this virus.
