That seemed to work okay, so here are some more photos from that great day out:
Image
The Spinnaker Tower at the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour. The viewing platforms are at the top of the curve.
Image
On the first gallery there is a glass floor - do you trust the strength of the glass ???
Image
And from the second gallery you get a wonderful view of HMS Warrior, one of the original "ironclad" warships.
Image
And a view of Old Portsmouth with the fishing fleet.

The boat trip round Portsmouth Harbour gave us great views of ...
Image
... HMS Illustrious ...
Image
... and Gunwharf Quays.

We stopped for lunch in the No. 7 Boathouse ...
Image
... but when the bar opened ...

Later on we were lucky enough to see this tall ship gracefully making her way into the quay.
Image

Overall it was a great day, meeting and sharing experiences with fantastic people and having a good laugh ...
Image
... even at Mamma Meerkat (my SO - carolv).

Hope you like the photos,

Richard
