Every time I walk into this port town, HMS Warrior- the first armor-plated, iron-hulled warship(1859) is right in the harbor standing tall and proud, a constant reminder of the age of naval dominance and the legacy  of  empire and seapower.  It  is in the misty salt water air too.
Smells like Victory, Admiral Horatio Nelson's  namesake ship docked at
 Portsmouth Historic Dockyard-the Royal Navy's most famous warship,
 hard to believe that you can fit 800 sailors on deck.


And here are some working boats back from a run on the open water

Visiting Arundel Castle,  It's never too late to have a good  childhood imagination, with Rapunzel's long blond hair flowing from one of Arundel's towers down to her love..I can hear the blacksmiths making weapons, and the townspeople cheering the knights jousting.

The Grass is Greener where the water is!

Walking downtown towards the Naval Dockyard, Spinnaker Tower is a 560 feet high landmark and the centerpiece of the redevelopment of the harbor.  Having just been in the UAE, The design is similar to the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, and I felt like the CAUSE was gone but the EFFECT was still there-like I was seeing a mirage! in the middle of a February day in the U.K.2/10/14...

The doors of this  circa 1648 manor house are about 5'9". Most of us in America would bump our heads. Thanks to good nutrition,  people nowdays are taller. There was, however, a window tax, based on how many a house had - maybe there was a door tax too based on the height.
