Acting The Tourist

Lovely sunny day for a bit of sightseeing. We used to live in Hampshire and have not visited for so long, for no good reason.  The Spinnaker Tower was built after we moved away, so we played tourist for the day, visited where we used to live and took in some stunning harbour views from the top platform.

For some unknown and bizzare reason this photo won’t load upright! You can still see the Glass floor though!

Doing this was fun. I was a little sad that the external elevator was not working, this made up for that!

We headed to Southsea next to see that the Hovercraft service to the Isle of Wight is still running. Not been over to the Island for many years, not enough time today though.

Called into the village where I used to live on our return route. Nothing much has changed, which is good to see. There are less big yachts on the river, the village seems to be quite busy, more houses have been built, and there are plenty of sold signs on properties in the local Estate Agencies.
