portsmouth trip

Monday, September 12, 2011

oh man it’s windy here today (and raining too).  i hope you all had a great weekend? 

last weekend we went to portsmouth for shopping and just to get out of london.  here is the photos from that visit.  we go there about 3 times a year to take advantage of the wholesale shops.

waiting for our train to portsmouth.


hubby relaxing on the 2 hour train journey
inside waterloo train station
the face statue is against all the pillars in waterloo station & our very green view out of the train
after wondering around in portsmouth for a bit, we had some lunch.  this was an awesome pub to have lunch.  the table numbers are huge & painted on the tables & and all the decor in the pub is ship or boat related.

our hamburgers we had for lunch
we looked at the portsmouth tower, and the boats in the harbour & an old bomb they are currently using as decor
they also had a few activities for kids; walking in a ball on water, little sailboats & playing in the sand
portsmouth has a old warship, HMS Warrior (from 1860) anchored in the harbour, and it's a museum ship.  this warship is HUGE.  the little blue ship in the front of this photo is not a toy but a real boat (see below)
a few funny photos of us on our way home.  wow it looked windy- just look at my hair. :) .  we also saw an old routemaster bus, waiting for a wedding party.


have a fantastic week!
