The Tower of Refuge

Tower of Refuge
“I took this photo last summer whilst staying on the island to scatter my father’s ashes and chose it for the following reason: My father grew up in his grandparents’ boarding house on Loch Promenade and his grandfather was Captain of the Lady of Mann at Dunkirk. As such, Douglas harbour has a special place in all our hearts. I love this building for many reasons. I love the concept of any building providing refuge, as a place of safety from the perils of the world. I love the fact that it looks like a fairytale sandcastle but, above all, I love the sense that generations of my family have looked at this view and seen it as a symbol of safe homecomings.”
