Postcard Travels with Roland Poland - Week 27 Isle of Man

Xui and Roland Poland have been to the TT races then onto Peel Castle where, unbeknown to Roland, legend has it, it is haunted by a spectral black dog, The Moddey Dhoo,  It is reputed to terrify to death anyone it dislikes.

He writes to his half-brother Malcolm

Hi Malcolm,
Went to the TT races with Xui - bikes were going too fast
and none of them had stabilizers like ours.
Went to Peel Castle, what is it with all these Black Dogs?
Malcolm, they are following me.  I can see its red eyes.

This is the page I made for him in his travel book.

I have included photos of Peel Castle, motorcycling and a Manx cat.  People say that the tail-less or short-tailed cat native of this island is more like a dog with its penchant for being with people.  Roland Poland doesn't think so. The badge insignia belongs to the Isle of Man Police Constabulary.

Thank you for joining us on our journey and I do hope you will visit all the other travellers on the Postcard Challenge (link in sidebar).


  1. Poor Roland, being followed like that! Great card and story! Valerie

  2. haha....wonder if that's where they got the idea for Scooby Doo and his spooky adventures?...and maybe it's just 1 black dog...who is stalking our Roland!!! :D XXX

  3. OOh spooky red eyes.... me no likey!

    I wonder if the black dog is a relative of the fairies on the Isle of Man.

  7. Great, glad I didn't go to the castle. Cheers

  8. It's great to see that you are still doing the adventures of Roland, Janet. Peel Castle looks like an intriguing place to visit. I used to have a wonderful black dog that I think Roland might have loved. Your postcard is fab.
