We rode the bike to Portsmouth yesterday evening for fish and chips on Southsea beach!  We were right next to the hovercraft landing stage.  The hovercraft looks a bit old fashioned now, like it belongs to another age!

Then we went to a little pub that we like on ‘Spice Island’, an area where they used to land spices years ago!

There is a great view of the Spinnaker tower from here.  WE really should go up the tower one day!  There is glass floor at the top eeeek!

Finally, the sun was setting across the water towards Gosport:

What a great place Portsmouth is, with the Isle of Wight just a few minutes across the Solent, there are boats all over the place!

I love Portsmouth - and your sunset is lovely. DO go up the Spinnaker - the view is amazing (even on a cloudy day as it was when I went)
