    HMS Victory

    August 23, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    In amazing condition after 150 years.

    Although after 26 million pound they will have replaced rather large parts of it.

    Orlopp deck a little under 4 1/2 feet in height (we are in the UK). The carpenter who worked here was 6 foot 7 inches. We think he worked sitting down alot.
    Terrific piece of history very well presented.

    Hugh number of kids with grandparents, one lady kept saying, "It will be over soon" as she clambered down another narrow, steep ladder.

    Historic Dockyard Portsmouth

    August 23, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Mark has finished the day in exhausted joy.

    Left Pevensey for an hour and twenty minute drive to Portsmouth.

    Only day breakfast was slow and got away later than planned.

    Two and a half hours of roadwork, rain, slow roundabouts and we were there.
    The Portsmouth Docks are enormous, used to be over 230 acres and had 25,000 people working th we really at the end for the war. British navy is now somewhat smaller and so are the Docks.

    Fortunately the tourists have taken up the slack.

    Much walking, climbing down stairs, climbing up stairs, more walking.
    Good time had by all (at least by Mark and Bernad was saintly patient.

    HMS Warrior

    August 23, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Warrior was the first really successful iron hulled, steam powered armoured frigate built in 1859–61.

    With 40 guns, over 9,000 tons and almost 130 metres long she was first of her class, the dreadnought of her day.

    A great ship remarkably restored.

    Drove from Premier Inn Guston Wood to Dungemess Kent which is a privately owned headland where there is a nuclear power station and a small tourist steam train, as well as an old lighthouse. We then drove to Hastings in East Sussex and met Kylie, daughter of a Sydney Harriette on the Hastings pier. Afterwards looked at Hastings old town before driving to the Portsmouth Ibis Inn in Hampshire to drop off bags before driving to Hamble for dinner with Simon Mayer and Cathy. Back to to the Portsmouth Ibis Inn after midnight.Read more
