I went for my usual lunchtime walk today. I’ve taken to going along the high street to the waterfront. It’s partly because I want to see the high street, just to see what is going on. but, I was very struck today by a feeling as I reached the Ferry terminal.
There was a hazy quality to the light, a kind Haley, but bright quality to it. There was a busker on the high street, lets just say, not the best I’d heard. A couple of weeks a chap was playing and he was good, both in voice and his ability to play the guitar.
Once again, the high street was surprisingly busy, with lots of small groups of people and individuals moving around.
Many of the seats along the Esplanade were occupied with people just taking in the view and the see air, and seeing things like the TS Royalist, one of a number of Training Ships for the Sea Cadets, of which there were two in portsmouth harbour today, this one was coming into harbour under partial sail, which was nice to see.
Of course, when I do my morning walks, things are very quiet, understandably. So it has been very nice to see facilities being used.
