Vacation Day 2 – Portsmouth Guildhall Square.
After sorting out the rental we went back and worked (more on that later). Our jet-lagged brains not being at their best we decided to take a break from work and go and get some essential shopping done at Commercial Road.
Essential shopping proved to be a tie and some socks for me, and lingerie for Ginger. She says the UK has much better offerings in this department. The due process of this found me abandoned in the Marks and Spencer lingerie department while intimate apparel was selected. Finally, a text to Lanie resulted in additional purchases (Trans-Atlantic shopping is so easy nowadays…).
Shopping complete we went for a stroll to Guildhall Square and then on through Victoria Park and back to where we’d left the car. Back at the car park, I had to grapple with the concept of parking metered by number plate recognition. Technology wonderful when it works – and on this occasion it did.
