    .......Theodore Roosevelt which is coming into Portsmouth tomorrow for 5 days.

    It will be moored off Stokes Bay with it's destroyer escort - can anyone recommend a site that overlooks the area please?

    Cheers

    I have always found that Stokes Bay just past Kingfisher Caravan park is a good viewing point near Browndown Camp.

    Thanks for that. We want to stay for a couple of nights and have looked at the Kingfisher site. £23/night was more than we wanted to pay at this time of year...but if there's nowhere else......:)

    Do you know what time she is expected? As I would drive down in car to stokes bay. Only live 45 mins away. Have used kingfisher park a few times and only because its convienent for Portsmouth shopping.bus stop right outside takes you to Gosport two minute ferry and in that shopping area and the historic dockyard, also fish market just by iow ferry terminal.

    Apparently not, it's going to moor off Stokes Bay which is why I was asking if anyone knew of any sites nearby:)....or that could be with the Americans wanting to secure an exclusion zone doh!:doh:
    A lot of Portsmouth drinking establishments are opening up early to welcome the americans though(y) (Allegedly)

    We were staying with the SIL in Sydney, got on the metro to Wooloomoloo and when we came out of a tunnel, it was still dark, couldn't weigh it up till I looked across the carriage and we were in the shadow of a US carrier, absolute behemoth :eek:
