I had this map of Gosport specially printed some months ago. It has been sat rolled up in a cardboard tube waiting for the end of Fantasy Holiday 21 and for me to make up my mind what I am going to do with it. I’ve made a decision.
Today, I ordered a bunch of numbered sticky dots with each sheet a different colour (well, really multiple sheets of each colour). I thought I would focus on three things; one is D-Day, 6 June 1944, another is the (are the?) blue plaques and thirdly, any very particular, rather than general point of history that may pique my interest.
I’d use blue numbered dots for the plaques, and red ones for D-Day points of interest. There seems to be a number of internet pages related to D-Day in Gosport (no surprise there). The thing is, that as I put a dot on the map, I want to visit the place. It’s kind of a bit of an expansion to, but not abandonment of the Gosport walk that I proposed quite a while ago, Incentive to walk and to write.
Have you noticed how I plan things and then don’t always follow through on them? Sometimes I do though.
