I went for a walk into town this morning. I did have to go into a couple of shops, but the main thing was to get out. It was worth it, Being a lovely bright day. Slightly on the chilly side. But it was a real pleasure to get out.
I was quite surprised that the the high street was quite busy. There were even a few market stalls out, mainly the ones selling food. People were being quite sensible, there were masks everywhere, people were making efforts not to get too close. It was definitely a case of people just wishing to be out to enjoy the day.
That was no more self evident than along the waterfront, on the Gosport Promenade, just about every seat was taken by one or two people, who were just enjoying watching the water. No particular ship activity whilst I was there, but that was OK.
It’s always a bit strange to be at the end of the Haslar Marina Pier Wall during normal daylight. I’m normally there about half past 6 in the morning. It was though, very pleasant.
