|Making our arrival at the Goodwood Estate. That LARGE home in the background is Lord March's private home. It has to be at least 50,000 sq feet or more.
|The historic district of the Portsmouth Harbor. Still a very active and modern harbor. We sail from there Sunday to France. In the modern section..
|A sad sign of the times we live in.. :(
|Love the site of a tall wooden ship..
|The HMS Victory. We were able to tour it even though it is undergoing a restoration. That is why the large mast and rigging are missing.
|You have heard the saying "Beating the drums of war"? Well this is a war drum.. Called the sailors to battle.
|The Captains quarters. Quite nice compared to where the sailors lived.
|A rather luxurious bed, for one of the officers.
|The stairs are definitely not designed for a size 13 foot!
|One of the nicer toilets on board.
|Still much better than the crew's beds.
|The Chart room.
|The Captains toilet.. At least it has a view.
|These racks hold cannon balls and are called "The Monkey"..
|My foot barely fit the on the stairs SIDEWAYS!!
|The Galley or kitchen on board. I bet some yummy meals came out of there...;)
|This is where the crew slept. literally packed in side by side..
|I stooped for an hour and half.. I was tired by the time we go off the ship.!!
|Standing up right between the beams..
|Really???? I would have never thought of that...
|The medical quarter and this is the "Operating Table and tools"... :(
|Rope is the life blood of a sailing ship. It is used everywhere and critical to keeping it moving. On this ship was over 20 MILES of rope on an average voyage!
|An antique British arcade game. Even centuries ago they thought we were rather a brutal lot.
|I told you its old here..
|Arriving at Goodwood for tea and cricket.
|This photographer was so excited to see us. He remembered us for three years ago when we visited here.
|Goodwood is about vintage airplanes too.
|Cricket, right up there in excitement with watching submarine races.
|It's nice to be a Lord.
|Goodwood is also about vintage clothing. I really am starting to love this style...
|Proper English gentlemen everywhere ..
|Even the parking lot is exciting! For car lovers at least.
|I met this lovely woman at Goodwood. She is one of the only female driving teams to ever finish the Peking to Paris rally! Later she invited us to her house for a party and BBQ.
|My friend Aubrey and his extremely valuable C Type Jaguar which he drove from London to Goodwood!
|While I am gone Bonnie had to send me a photo of her with her new La Ferrari...
|Arriving for the evenings festivities. What a beautiful view over looking the local bay at sunset.
|Our hottest and Duane in her magnificent 17th century home.
|Lord Len... I like the sound of it. :)
|My friend and his 51 year old daughter.. Talk about good genes!!!
