Portsmouth phase 2

As some readers will know we’ve recently purchased a flat in Camber Dock, Old Portsmouth. It’s not totally wheelchair accessible yet, but I can get by for a couple of nights. We arrived the other day and, as luck would have it the weather was kind to us.

Our location is facing the dock and so the view is ever changing with the tide and type of craft present, as the dock is home to fishing boats, pleasure craft and working tugs and craft. Here’s a night and day view.

We spent a little time sorting things out but as the weather was so good most of time was spent outside enjoying it. The time passed quickly, partly because of the ever changing view.

There’s quite a lot of variety very local to us: Camber Dock, Gunwharf Quay, Clarence Parade, with its funfair as well as the  usual things like the beach and associated attractions. Of current interest is the BAR team’s headquarters for the 35th America’s Cup. In fact I don’t think we’ve explored one percent of the place yet. Anyway all to soon it was time to head back to Beckenham with one last view from the front.

I suppose we betting start thinking of furnishing the place…..
