101/365 A. Pleasant Sunday

Here we are then, starting the 2nd hundred. Let’s see how we do. Although it was a grey day, and there had been a brief shower before we got up. It stayed dry, so we thought we would go for a short bike ride.

On Friday, we had done our usual, fish (or in my case Sauasage) & chips from the chippy. We drove down to the Stokes Bay waterfront, and parked up near the GAFIRS (Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service) Lifeboat Station.

As we approached the car park, we could see some unusual lights in the Solent. Checking my Marine Traffic application I could see that there was a ship at anchor about where the lights were. The app told me what I wanted to know. It is the Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) Tidespring, and I’m not disclosing anything sensitive as MT says it’s on Military Operations. Definitely not covert, as it was broadcasting an AIS (Automatic Identification System) Beacon and was light up not unlike a Christmas tree.

We were curious to see what she looked like in daylight, so today we thought we would take a bike ride down to Stokes Bay, and there she was for all to see. It was a very pleasant ride out,

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.
