Douglas, Isle of Man

From the waterfront in Douglas, a miniature castle is visible in the harbor.  It's too small for anyone to live in, but not too small to provide a refuge where shipwrecked sailors may await rescue.  After all, the Irish Sea can be a treacherous body of water.  On the one hand, clever; on the other, an example of innovation without diffusion.  [2011]
