And I do mean lazy. About the most effort was my going to get the newspapers, a five minute walk in each direction. Somehow though, just traipsing around, I’ve managed to clock up my 10,000 steps. Not sure how I did that.
Just after midday, Elayne and I decided that we would drive to Lee-on-The-Solent to just sit by the seaside, with our books and have an ice cream, and then possibly fall asleep. Which is exactly what we did. First though, when we arrived the seas was a little bit rough, and there was quite a breeze.
This is where we got the pictures of the Sea Gulls. As we pulled up, they were just hanging there in the air, making no attempt to move forward, the wind was keeping them up. It was quite an amazing sight. People think of them as being a pest and they can be a bit brazen, but they are incredibly graceful in the air. It was a real pleasure to watch.
There were no cruise ships in Southampton today. But there were a couple of container ships coming in and a much smaller one going out. There are non of the cruise ships that we have been on due in until mid April, when the cruise season really kicks off. I hope all of the holiday companies are OK this year. It is going to be a difficult one for them.
