Postcards from Southsea

We sat under cloudless skies in brilliant sunshine pondering on the seascape and activity: The Isle of Wight was the clearest I have seen from the mainland; Portsmouth’s Spinnaker tower;  victorian Spitbank Fort in the sea now a luxury hotel; the luxury cruiseliner off on its travels; the beach ; the pier; the hovercraft on route to the IOW and the ornateness of the prom’s lampposts.

I also pondered on what it was about the English that as soon as the sun shines out come the shorts, flip-flops, tattooed arms and skimpy dresses….it was 12 degrees and I was not letting go of my coat and scarf! Madness!!
