Sea Terminal

“Every summer throughout the 70s, me and my sisters would compete to be the first to spot the spike of the sea terminal building as we chugged into Douglas on one of the old Steam Packet boats. For us, it didn’t just point upwards to the sky. It pointed towards the Fairy Bridge, towards Perwick, Silverdale, Bradda Glen, the limpet cities sprawling across the flat rocks of The Point.

When our two weeks with Grandma were up, we’d watch the spike shrink down to nothing, blending into the horizon and blurred by tears, because we could hardly bear to leave the island that had our hearts. This is why I love this building. Not only because it’s an iconic part of our heritage, but also because it’s part of my family’s history, woven into our visual DNA through layers of memories you can’t put a price on.”
