These days, this is a comparatively rare experience. To see one of the Brittany Ferries coming in to Portsmouth Harbour. This morning I was lucky enough to arrive at the waterfront whilst the Armorique was in the “Bar Channel” I’m not sure why it is called that. There are a number of bouys marked with sequential numbers. They mark the channel.
I was awakened by the sound of one of our cats heaving, as it happens it was just at the right time. After throwing him out the door I got ready to go out. It was cold, only just above freezing, 3-4C , apparently it’s going to be colder tomorrow. I didn’t mind the cold, especially when the light was like it was this morning. That lovely gentle glow that develops as the sun rises.
