Part II: Rest days in Gosport/Portsmouth

Part II: Rest days in Gosport/Portsmouth

After the passage, we wanted at least one rest day, which unfortunately had much better weather than the day we sailed. On Tuesday, we explored the cities, and on Wednesday we planned to sail to the Isle of Wight to stay at the Folly Inn up the Medina River. When Wednesday came, however, it was terrible weather-- low winds and heavy rain, so we planned to pack up and leave on Thursday morning. Thursday morning was very nice, however, so we took off across the Solent then.

Here are some pics from our rest days at Gosport and Portsmouth. My son fished, my daughter got a new hat and shirt, the kids got to see the Spiderwick movie, and we had lunch at a great pub with outside seating at the historic Spice Island.
