I haven't been to Portsmouth by boat for a quite while (not counting the Brittany ferry last summer) and it was nice to revisit all the familiar features from when we kept Blue Clipper there years ago, the Millennium Tower and Spice Island in the foreground
Mary Mouse, the bar and shower block for Haslar marina based in the old lightship.
A couple of Victory class, local day boats similar to the XOD's but clinker built and I believe unique to Portsmouth.
A Daring class Destroyer alongside.
And another one out on a mooring in the harbour.
Moored in the Porchester channel a very nice sloop, sadly the light was fading.
day twelve - around the bend to New Bern
