The view back into town of South Western House on the right and on the left is a building which featured in the film Titanic.
This is the view in front of you when you have either taken the little electric train or walked up the pier, very picturesque cottages.
We didn't get going very early today so it was lunchtime when we arrived and our first stop was in the pub for a drink and lunch.
These were something different. G had a toffee apple cider and mine was strawberry and lime. His was nicest. They are made by Brothers though not Magners.
We had some info with us to possibly do one of these healthy walks, click on the picture to see the hearts marking out the trails, as one of them led to a woodland which links up to a nature trail.
Instead we opted to stay by the waterfront and follow the path round the marina.
Did someone say 'sit up straight?!'
There was a very interesting map of the local area showing it's connection with different aspects of WW2. Like the fact the Mulberry harbour was assembled at the docks before being towed to Normandy and where we live was the SuperMarine works where they made Spitfires.
We watched boats coming in from Southampton water and going through the lock back into the marina. T and S were very interested to see how that worked.
When it was time to make our way back to buy and ice cream before catching the ferry home we passed this fountain which had a sign prohibitng paddling. It said nothing about splashing!
