We have left Oakapple in Warwick for the week as we have a few things at home to deal with, one of them being our daughter's 40th birthday party to attend. She was not best pleased about reaching the big Four Oh! However we all had a great evening and she is still our baby.
We are taking the opportunity to catch up with friends and family that we haven't seen for a while.
Sunday we visited Port Solent, a big marina in Portsmouth Harbour. It has a fine range of bars and eateries, one of which is a Spoons called the Sir Alec Rose. He sailed his yacht, Lively Lady, single handed round the world and was knighted by the Queen on his return to Portsmouth. The yacht is berthed at Port Solent near the bar which bears his name.
Just boring stuff for the rest of the week. Can't wait to be wizing back north to Warwick in our hire car to continue our cruise.
