A Day Out In Portsmouth

I’ve been to the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard before, but as my yearly ticket can be used as many times as I like for £24.25, I thought I had better go again. I chose today, as the weather looked it might by sunny in the afternoon. I got the weather wrong, as it was sunny from when I arrived in Portsmouth Harbour station at about 12:30, courtesy of South West Trains for £23.30 in ninety minutes.

I walked to Carluccio’s in the Gunwharf Quays shopping centre by the station so I could have some lunch. But it would be much nicer if there was a direct connection between the station and the shopping centre.

Every time I visit Portsmouth there seems to be more to see, especially in the Dockyard.

  1. Nice photographs, but don’t you get tired with all the travelling?

  2. No! I love travelling and always have done! And I can afford it! Trains can be a wonderful window on the world!

    If I’m not travelling, I’ll often walk round the local park or cemetery, observing the birds, flowers and animals..

    Or I might visit a museum or gallery.

    You have to realise that to me life is a wonderful thing. And I’ve seen two of the closest people to me die horrible deaths and then I nearly died myself.

    So I’m going to cheat the Devil as long as I can! And I’ll certainly stick two fingers up to her for now!
