Seaside, Aquarium, Museum and Harbour

BREAKFAST1We managed to pack in a lot on our first full day on the coast! It started with a hearty breakfast … BREAKFAST2There were also sliced breads, a cooked English breakfast selection, cold meats, fruit and yoghurts. We, uh, tried everything!BREAKFASTDUOThere was a bus stop right in front of the hotel and I thought it best to get dropped off as close as possible to our first destination and walk back.PORTSMOTUHCOLLAGEI wore the plimsolls thankfully as we ended up walking for hours! SEASIDE2We ended up on the beautiful seafront promenade. The beach was pebbly but it didn’t disappoint in the least for the stunning weather and views. It was a weekday and relatively empty so we felt we had the whole place to ourselves. Ferries, Hovercraft and sailing ships filled the water.FISHWe walked the rest of the way to our destination which was the Aquarium situated right on the seafront. It was a great place!FISH2FISH3FISH4COLOURFLASHCARPTURTLEFISH5SEAHORSESHRIMPDUOJELLYFISHFROGAfter I managed to drag my kids away from the souvenir shop, we walked back along the promenade.
