This was the view of Portsmouth as we left it behind for the Isle of Wight. It was raining and blowing a gale, definately wet and windy. However, looking for the bright side, it did mean that I had the “sundeck” mostly to myself to play with the camera. Apart from the odd hard and fast smoker who couldn’t manage the whole trip without a fix, I was the only one outside.
Happily, our first day of travelling and arriving was the worst day for the weather and it gradually got better through the week.
