237/366 The Morning walk

The Moon, even though a very waning crescent, was quite prominent this morning. I took this picture of one of the Wight Link Ferries as it was departing toward Fishbourne. I quite like the picture, in my eyes there was a kind of serenity to it.

It was a quite relaxing walk, I was even able to take a five minute break to have a chat with one of the people I see at the waterfront, there was no rush. It was a cold one. Luckily I had my balaclava with me. I needed to pull it up over my ears for the back leg of the walk.

One thing I noticed on my walk along the high street was a lack of rough sleepers. I wonder where they had gone. I hope they were somewhere comfortable. The street was even more quiet than normal, I guess that’s because it’s Easter Week, lots of people off for school holidays.

I was thinking about which is the most boring part of the walk. It’’s a toss up between the stretch along Mumby Road to Clarence Road. Nothing much exciting happening there, although not far, a matter of a few yards off to each side are this of major historic interest; Queen Victoria’s railway down to Clarence yard, punching as it does a hole through what were Gosport’s defences. Large chunks of which are no longer there, but of what does a remain is being repaired and refurbished and should be very interesting when opened.

On the other side of Mumby Road is St Georges Barracks. Whilst I haven’t been inside they have been converted in to what looks like some very tasteful flats. I didn’t know that they had been built in a way, with extra buttressing so that they could be covered in earth as additional protection.

So, you see, even the most boing part of the walk isn’t; at all.

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.
