    Whilst having a few days in the Portsmouth area to attend a school reunion I took the opportunity to meet up with Del- Novawight at the Ship Inn Langstone. Del brought a bottle of homemade firewater that will not survive Christmas, thanks Del.

    you can see I was there early to see the sun come up.
    I spent the night on the Quay, it has been a while since the grain barges tied up here
    the Royal oak is not too far away either.

    I considered getting the fishing rods out but had places to be. Another day,,,,,,,,,,, oh yes another day. I spent hours fishing here as a kid. Was great to be back.
