Just being ME

Please say hello ... I love comments!


gunwharf quays ...

Today we had a great day out, we travelled down to Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth. I am sure this will be familiar to other couples out there, but today me and J actually spent some time doing something together as a couple, and on a week day! We both have separate hobbies and different places of work, so it sometimes seems we spend more time apart doing our own thing, then we actually spend together.

The two pictures above are of the Spinnaker Tower, we took these when we visited late last year, the 2nd photo is whilst standing over the glass floor looking down.

On the journey down we stopped at McDonalds in Arundel for a latte and then drove on to Portsmouth where we had a good mooch around the shops and the harbour area. We didn't go in and up the Spinnaker Tower this time, as we now want to wait until they have the external lift working (can you believe technology can send a man to the moon but cannot get a lift to work) to get great views when ascending up to the viewing platforms, maybe next time?

We had a cappuchino each late morning in the Spinnaker Tower cafe and then for a late lunch we had a great set buffet meal in the chinese, The Water Margin, which is great value for money as you can have starters, main meal and desserts all for a set price of £6.90 each, there is a selection of at least 30 dishes, I hasten to add we needed no more food for the rest of the day.

Its interesting to see pictures of Portsmouth, I have spent three years studying there, which I did not like. It seems it has improved alot since then. Glad you had a nice day out and had a nice coupley day. Those are so nice to have, so much of life is so busy.
