For our final full day away, I wore the white Gap 1969 legging jeans, ivory Mango linen jumper layered over a Gap viscose tee, Hermès gavroche, vintage Gucci belt and Sam Edelman patent slingbacks. We had a big breakfast again, packed, checked out and headed straight back to the harbour. Details. I really love my Hermès silver cuff with appropriate sea themed cut outs.Gap oatmeal viscose tee layered under the linen jumper. In case it got really, really hot then I’d wear the jumper over my shoulders. It didn’t!Checking out: lifts were on the left, reception to the right and from the first pillar back is their open lounge/bar/restaurant area. Initially, I wasn’t so sure about visiting a naval city albeit a very famous one with a lovely seashore until I realised two of my favourite historical figures are associated with the county of Hampshire: Admiral Lord Nelson and Jane Austen. HMS Victory. New and Old From the harbour we headed back to ‘Pebble Beach’ as my kids dubbed the seashore we first visited the previous morning and found a kite festival in full flight! The weather could not be more perfect! We had a picnic lunch watching the sea.The sun was pretty fierce once the clouds rolled away.Then treated ourselves to cake at Patisserie Valerie in the shopping centre.We had to hit the road towards home with a slight detour to another famous city in the county: Winchester. We stumbled upon the cathedral from the back. In front of it is a hotel (a very ugly one sadly). I had never seen such a beautiful cathedral except at Chartres which it reminded me of. We had a short walk around the town before grabbing some dinner and driving the rest of the way home non stop. It was a most enjoyable 3 days and we hope to visit beautiful Hampshire again soon!
