We're back on the island after an extended break in Lanzarote, and on Thursday afternoon I took a walk to the top of North Barrule, specifically to take some aerial shots of the 'Three Legs' arranged from stone just below the summit.  I would normally have walked there from Black Hut via Clagh Ouyr, but unfortunately the Mountain Road is still closed north of Bungalow for pre TT races repairs, so instead I walked up from the east side, starting from the Hibernia Road.  It's actually shorter that way, just steeper, and I fitted in a visit to the B17 crash site on the way up.

On Friday afternoon we went for a stroll around Ballaglass Glen, mainly to see the bluebells flowering there before they all vanish for another year.

There has been a good display of bluebells flowering on the slopes of Sulby Glen this year, so yesterday afternoon I set out to try and capture them, using a drone to get access to angles that wouldn't have been available from ground level.  I also didn't have to get my feet wet trying to cross the river!  The only problem was that the sun decided to hide behind a thin layer of cloud, which muted the colours a bit.

Yesterday we went to the excellent Milntown Cafe for lunch (pre-booking advised!), but arranged our journey to allow over an hour for wandering around the lovely gardens beforehand.  I'll not attempt to identify any of the plants, I only know a few!  The gardens are maintained by a small team of gardeners, who do a superb job of growing a wide variety of plants that make a visit worthwhile at any time of year.  Milntown House is open regularly for organized tours.

A visit yesterday afternoon to the Wildlife Park, followed by a walk through the Ballaugh Curragh.

Regular visitors to Island Images might have noticed the total lack of pictures in the April section.  This was because we were away for the whole month on our latest trip to Lanzarote, in the Canary Islands.  On this trip I took the Mini 2 drone with me and shot quite a lot of panoramas, I've been working on stitching them since we arrived back and I've now started uploading them to a separate section a few at a time.  There are currently nineteen 360 degree ones and two linear.
Click the image below to visit the section, or you can find it via the '360 Degree Panoramas' index.
On Friday afternoon I paid a visit to the delightful locations of Niarby and Traie Vane, mainly with the intention of obtaining some aerial shots at high tide.
