We were moored up at the Berney Arms with some friends on Saturday having a few drinks as you do when suddenly my husband pointed and said "Look at that". I thought he was referring to the beautiful sun set (it was about 7 p.m.) but to our amazement a man went running past us wearing a model castle on his head. It was huge and very detailed and kept in place by a shoulder harness. What was even more strange was the fact that there was a doll of some sorts sitting in the middle. At first we thought it must be a fun run but no-one else came past. Then we thought it might be some kind of local ritual so if any members have any idea what he was up to please let me know. I must say that it gave us the giggles for the whole evening!
We hadn't imbibed that much before we saw him but we needed a few stiff ones after as we couldn't believe our eyes and had to KEEP talking about it all evening.After all it's not often you see that sort of thing in such a reMOAT setting.
Thanks for all your responses. I am pretty sure that it must have been the buddhist monk.
