We had a full day to kill in Portsmouth before we sailed across to France in August. Hubby had decided that the Historic Dockyard looked like a full day - and it was. We enjoyed looking around all the ships especially the Victory and the restoration of the Mary Rose (and all the amazing relics that the underwater archaeologists had uncovered). We also loved sailing around the modern day Navy vessels that were in port - some being de-commisioned, others having re-fits. All in all a very interesting place to explore. The last 2 photo's were taken as we sailed out of Portsmouth, before we bedded down for the night for the crossing.
