It wasn’t freezing for my early walk, but not far from it. Temperatures of around 3.5C and a 3 or 4 knot breeze making it feel even chillier meant that I would have appreciated a set of ear muffs. But it wasn’t too bad. The morning skies are brightening rapid;y now, bring some colour to the morning pictures which is nice.
Walking out on the Haslar Marina Pier wall was a bit dodgy. There were two points where I lost my footing and nearly went flying. Luckily I didn’t. But if it is as cold in the morning I’m likely no to go to my. Favourite point to deliver my weather report to the #Breakfastclub, which is out at the end of the wall.
Not much movement in the harbour. The Normandie came in, and the ferries were merrily going too and fro. I can’t help wondering about the captains and crew of the gosport ferries. Fundamentally, it can’t be a massively interesting job, but they always seem to go at it with gusto and enthusiasm. I wonder what it is that they bring to each transit? Are they people watchers, or do they treat each journey, at a rough guess of about 8 minutes crossing time, approx 15 from doors opening one side, to doors closing the other side – roughly as an adventurous cruise in its own right? Just thinking.
