A maritime weekend


First stop on Saturday was the ocean terminal, Southampton, to board the P &O Azura. I am reluctant to cruise, so an opportunity to see what is offered, get a feel of who cruises, seemed a perfect way to have a look without parting with too much cash. 


Lots of bars and restaurants and a plethora of places to do as much or as little as you want. I’m probably considering to give it a go, but, I have certain requirements for accommodation etc and not sure Kevin’s pockets are as deep as my expectations high. But I see that we could fit in the Monaco GP so watch this space!

After a great lunch, we headed for Portsmouth
We popped in to see a cousin then made our way to G! Boutique Hotel. Our room was Glamorous , very apt! 


We decided on Tapas for a bite to eat, then exhausted, I had a bath and bed. 

A tasty breakfast started the day, followed by a FaceTime call to Australia. We checked out and made our way to the historic boatyard in Portsmouth for the centenary of the battle of Jutland exhibition. 


The loss of life, as now, is so sad, and this was a fitting tribute to those who gave their lives. So sad to see about Jack Cornwell, only sixteen, to be among them. We are so fortunate to see glimpses of times gone by and to feel proud of our services.

A stroll to see the Victory , I’d like to say resplendent, but not quite! 

It as been a lovely few days, and just what I needed, after a week to forget!

Let’s see what the next week brings!
