Got here about 5pm, it's gone a bit muggy after a lovely sunny day out in Dorset. We have been to Lulworth Cove, Swanage, Sandbanks and Christchurch today, big news down here is a big new airport terminal... Ohhhh... Had a lovely bath and we are heading down for some food again ;-)

After the shock of old town centre we went down to the Historic Dockyard area, visited HMS Warrior, the adjoining museum and the low headroom HMS Victory, which was all very interesting... Jumped on the harbour tour boat which chugged around the Navy dockyards past UK and US warships then got dropped off at a second dock... Ooohhhh.... What's this, the area around the Spinicer Tower is lovely, loads of shops and resturants, nice streetscapes... Lovely...
Odd place Portsmouth, grand entry via a motorway, nice open seafront areas, then you get into the centre and it's like a supersized Rotherham !!! Shocking ;-)

Back at the cottage now after dinner. I'm a bit tipsy after drinking almost a full bottle, but laid out watching telly now. Went for a drive this afternoon exploring around Goodwood, drove into the car park of Rolls Royce factory, had a nosy around Chichester too... Waiting to see what the weather brings tommorrow before we decide what to do....
Very quiet down here, just been to Selsey Bill, which is famed from the Madness song, moving further west towards Portsmouth, the Coastal villages seem to get more wealthy and prettier the closer to Portsmouth.... Mmmmm... Suns lovely on my back, the cloulds are inland, we are getting sun from the seaward direction, where there are no cloulds.

Just under four hours from Sheffield with a small mistake of taking the M3 instead of the A3, we soon got back on track and probably missed a massive traffic jam on the M25. Arrived in East Lavant about 4:15pm, it's 24 degrees, sunny and there is a nice cooling breeze... Yay, holiday !
