Betty and Danny Sneddon
Greetings from the USA. I am using this site to keep memories of my Mother Betty Sneddon and my Dad Danny Sneddon alive in Douglas. Mum traveled to many far off Countries during her lifetime but Douglas was her favorite place. Danny was a wonderful man whom we loved dearly. It feels just like yesterday that you both passed. Life has never been the same since. Love you both, Betty

trail camera
I set up my trail camera under the Red Bridge over the Douglas Water to capture images of Otters which had been leaving trails there.
I went to retrieve it yesterday and it was gone
It was maybe kids who were exploring under the bridge or an opportune thief who happened to come across it, even although it was well tucked away
If anyone becomes aware of a camouflaged colour Bushnell trail camera 6''x 4''x 2'' becoming available or any kids suddenly aquiring one please let me know
