A relentlessly busy year has finally stopped and today we set off for France, travelling with Brittany Ferries from Portsmouth to Caen.
We passed warships new, and old.
And the symbol of Portsmouth – the Emirates (!) Spinnaker.
And then we were in the Solent and heading south.
I wonder why it was named the “The Emirates Spinnaker”??
I didn’t know it was ‘Emirates’ – perhaps they paid for it?
Actually I for one become intrigue by the name and learned something… here’s the news “http://www.thenational.ae/business/aviation/portsmouth-reviews-plans-to-repaint-spinnaker-tower-in-emirates-red-and-white-colours” 🙂 glad that I leaned something from fellow bloggers!
Thank you! Oh dear!
Have a good time!
No garden, no cleaning, no tidying – R&R!
Lovely blue skies there today hope they continue for your French sojourn! You haven’t got a garden there to tend and maintain have you? Have a great break!
