Back again with a bit more. Life is very laid back at John's place, although he wouldn't agree with me at the moment as he busy's himself with the party preparations. This morning we went to get a few supplies, and this afternoon I have blown up forty balloons, so I am a bit out of puff now. Later I took Sadie the dog for a walk, and she was happy to go with me.
Right let's crack on. Portsmouth yesterday was a busy day for me. I was thinking I might go back another day while I am down here, but I think I've seen most of what I want to see. The iconic Spinnaker Tower stands 170 metres high, and gives panoramic views of the harbour and beyond. On a good day you can see up to 23 miles away.
In she goes, almost there. The harbour is very busy will all sorts of crafts coming and going.
The little passenger boat down there is the Gosport Ferry. I took a ride across on it. It only takes a few minutes to the other side.
Off she goes, backwards and forwards. There are trips around the harbour, but I thought at £7 it was too much, so I took this little ferry for £1.30, a cheap boat ride.
Here you can see the Historic Dockyard where I was earlier.
There's the ferry landing in Gosport.
Some of the views inland are pretty spectacular as well.
There's a train just leaving the station.
And the Isle of Wight Ferry is on it's way again.
