Usually we like wild and windswept beaches far from anywhere like Shetland Skye or Orkney but we do really love this beach. We usually come off the very early ferry at 6am drive here and park on the front by the beach. We just sit and watch the whole place come alive. First the very early morning joggers, lots of nurses and doctors with their nhs name badges bouncing along, then the dog walkers, then the fun joggers, families with children arriving and the whole place is alive with happy faces. I get out and gently walk (post heart attack) along the path at the side of the beach, it is so easy going and flat. I do walk down at the nearest point to the sea, just a few feet, and just stand and take in the view. All the different ferries going in and out, accross to the old forts and to the Isle of Wight. We had brilliant sun with a fresh breeze. This really is a lovely place.

We decided to walk from Southsea Pier into "Old Portsmouth" and back, which is a very healthy walk with lots of interesting sites to see a long the way. It was a crisp December day with everybody socially distancing, as well as the sites the people watching was excellent.

It was nice just strolling along this beach eating our homemade ice cream, its a shame its all pebbly, their are the normal arcades and gift shops and lots and lots of seagulls just waiting to pinch your ice cream.
