Final Stage !

I expect by now everyone is bored (!) with reading about my holiday, but I promise this is really the last post. I could not tell you about leaving Portsmouth on the ferry, very aptly named the 'Bretagne' !

Sailing out of the harbour into the Solent, passing remnants of the Royal Naval fleet (all undergoing refurbishment in this area so no official secrets being shown!)

Nelson's flag ship ' Victory'

HMS 'Warrior' - the first iron hull vessel. Rescued from being used as a floating dock and now fully restored .

the Spinnaker Tower , taller than both Big Ben & the London Eye

and out passed the Isle of Wight , our last glimpse of the UK ! By this time the light was really bad, so no more photos (!) just time for a light meal and a glass of wine before turning in, knowing that 7.30 the following morning we would be back in La Belle France !
