The triangle of lights going off to the right hand side is the ramp that leads to the Gosport Ferry Terminal. Looking at the picture, the ramp is pretty much level. This tells you that the tide is in. It wasn’t quite at it’s height at the time I took picture (0633), high tide would have been about 0800 ish. I know this because I have an app that tells me.
Now, that sparks a thought in me. My iPad and iPhone are loaded with apps, many of them I have downloaded and probably used only once and am not likely to use again. So, I might just keep a track of which apps I use and delete the ones that I don’t. The trouble is I look at an app and think to myself “Oooh, that looks useful” and I can’t quite bring myself to remove them. I’ll just have to be more rigorous.
Back then to the Promenade. It’s not too long, probably a third to a half of a mile in total. Regardless of the weather, it’s always really nice to walk along. When the weather is nice it’s lovely to just stroll along, watch the boats, and the people, most of the time people will exchange pleasantries and have a brief chat.
When the weather is rough, the wind is blowing, the rain is lashing, there won’t be many people around, just those who are really dedicated. Now, it’s not something I do very often. But when I do, I enjoy it. Just not at 6 in the morning!
