Gosport trip 3rd May 2014

A sunny Saturday and we trained to Portsmouth Harbour, ferried to Gosport and walked through the busy pedestrian shopping and market street westwards.  After half an hour left the centre on a cycle and pedestrian track made from an abandoned railway, heading south for Alverstoke.  This place has a grand crescent in the Georgian style seen in Bath and Brighton, built as a new resort it failed to grow and is now a pleasing oddity.

Nephew Laurence and his wife Lynsey fed us in  their sunny garden and – special treat  – provided me with a bottle of Gosport based Oakleaf Brewery’s India Pale Ale.  Delicious.  We also met Harrison, who, at nine weeks old had little to say.
