27/365 A Side Alleyway

From the Gosport High Street toward Trinity Church, one of several alleyways. I meant to take a picture down the alleyway that was used to press gang men I believe around 1850. Not sure if this allway was a used, as there is nowhere for the pressgang to hide away.

The lights are interesting, green and red – echoing ships lights. Port & Starboard. I could never remember which side was which as you look to the front of a ship, Port is to the left, and Starboard to the right. How did I learn to remember that? Port, the drink is red, red is politically left, therefore port is left.

Notice how the lights are laid though; with the port lights on the right hand side, this means you must be going out of town. To be correctly aligned, you must head in to town. Going out should make any sailor feel uncomfortable.

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.
