Shanklin revisited today. Hope beach at low tide, with Sandown Bay and Culver in the background again.

Toffee the terrier is 15 and almost blind with cataracts; vets are unwilling to operate because it simply might be too much for him. He has a pretty reasonable quality of life, though, and is a real character. (you met him, @Stirlin )

The lead provides some reassurance for him; in the picture he is probably sniffing the beach aromas and recalling the seagulls he used to chase there!

Just posted this on A***e, but posted here as a reminder of Dog Shit City.

Lunch with old friend in Pompey today at the Abar Bistro (used to be the American bar, near the Gunwharf Wightlink car ferry terminal.

Two shots of HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Queen Elizabeth taken from the IOW car ferry.

The first shows the harbour entrance, with part of Fort Blockhouse ( formerly HMS Dolphin) on the left and the Round Tower and Hot Walls on the right. Also shows the Spinnaker Tower.

The second is taken from inside the harbour entrance before the ferry turned right to berth at the ferry terminal. Gosport ferry in foreground, South Railway Jetty right of centre and the Semaphore Tower to the right of that. Keen ship-spotters might just make in black and white out part of HMS Warrior(1860), with what appears to be her mizzen topmast removed, presumably for maintenance.
