923 – Crossing the water

This morning I went over to Portsmouth using the Gosport ferry. I have to admit that the whole process is very smooth. I wanted to purchase a multi-journey becasue each journey is cheaper. The ticket office was closed, presumably becasue I was too early. Not to worry, the machines were working, do they dispense multi-journey tickets?

Yes, they do. Not only that, you can pay wirelessly! Excellent. I will give Gosport Council their due (not actually anything to do with the Ferry company but commenting as an aside) As much as I hate paying for car parking, the ticket machines are up to date and take contactless payment. I do think they have also come to their senses be allowing an hours free parking. That has to be good for the town. Ok, back to the main story.

Ticket in hand, I proceed to the ferry terminal. Now, we do have to wait a few minutes for the next ferry, but that’s OK. It’s saturday, and its off peak. The ferrry comes towards us, and really does look like the gates on the ferry won’t align with the doors on the terminal, and then almost literally in the last second the ferry swings around the things line up perfectly.

I have to admit that I can’t help be impressed with the skills of the captains of the ferries I have seen them get it a little bit wrong, but it is very rare.

I was going to breakfast with a group of amateur radio operators. We speak regularly, but we rarely see each other face to face , so opportunities like this are always appreciated. We went to the Royal Maritime Hotel. They do a buffet breakfast for what I thought was £9.95, but turned out to be £9.50. The breakfast was very nice, and was felt by all six of us to be well worth it. We all agreed that we would definitely do it again. Now, I have it in my mind to set a date, say three months hence, but I will confirm it with the #Breakfastclub on Monday.

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.
