Picture this, a sky full of thunder at Harwich.   Now picture a sunny Spring day in Portsmouth, having lunch and watching the ferries go by.   It may sound surprising but it is now possible to dine on the waterfront at Portsmouth at Gunwharf Quays beside the Spinnaker Tower (above right).   There is a good choice of restaurants and a fine selection of ferries ranging from Gosport ferry (just visible above left), through Isle of Wight ferries (both below left) to cross channel ferries (below right).   Finally as a digestif you might like a tour round the Solent on one of the small cruising vessels (right). waterfront-solent-cat.JPG (34567 bytes)
