139/366 Out for a walk

Out for a walk today, nowhere particularly interesting. I had in my mind to take pictures of that which is “Typically Gosport”. Because I am staying away from the high street, I’m not saying my choice of subjects is limited, it’s just that nothing in particular jumped out at me. Until I reached the George & Dragon.

There are few things more typically Gosport than a pub. There are still quite a few about, and there were a whole lot more in the past when we were a thriving Navy town. To the extent that I went to a Gosport Society presentation last year, that was about the pubs of gosport.

I can’t remember the name of the presenter – I could probably look it up, and I do him an injustice when I say that the presentation appeared to consist of an older gentleman who clearly enjoyed a pint or two reading out a list of pub names for forty five minutes. Giving the impression that each name recited represented a good night, a lost opportunity. A lament for a loved drinking den.

That brings back a memory of good times in the past, and a lament for a well liked drinking den – now closed.

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.
