A lovely sight

I had arranged to take my bike in to Cycle world for it’s first service today. Just about two months after I bought it. The first two services are free, so it seems silly not to take advantage. I did say that I would have the bike at the shop for when it opened, so that I could pick it up as early as possible.

I took a ferry across to Portsmouth at about 0830. There were only a couple of miles the other side, but it was a bit fiddly. But I arrived at the shop about 5 minutes before it opened. They said come back at midday.

I took the opportunity to walk back to Commercial road along that part of London Road as far as I can. That part of London road is an area bustling with activity, lots of people & cars about. I suspect it is a good area for people watching and street photography – if only I had the guts to do it, working on it but still not quite there.

I had a good browse around Waterstones, but I didn’t buy anything. I had a long polish sausage in a bread role for lunch. It was very nice. Then it was time to walk back up to cycle world. I’m getting my steps in today.

The trip home was a bit hairy. It was very windy, head on. A couple of places it was so strong, I was nearly stationary.

On the ferry going out, I saw a couple of tugs heading out, that usually means something reasonably big is coming in. Now, I don’t think it was the same thing that came in for my return trip, but you never know. Any how, the Lovely sight referred to is the Monrovian registered Columbian Star, a Reefer which will be carrying fruit and veg in to Portsmouth. The unusual thing was it being escorted by four tugs, It really was a lovely sight.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
