After leaving the white cliffs of Dover behind us in last night’s sunset, we cruised west in the English Channel all night and this morning arrived in the historic port city of Portsmouth.  Several options were available for our excursions today, including a very special visit to Southwick House, where the details of the D-Day invasion were planned. There was also an opportunity to visit a beautiful local wildlife reserve at Titchfield or to explore the historic docks and ships at the old naval dockyards in the center of Portsmouth’s harbor. Whichever option we chose, it was a great way to begin getting to know some of the beautiful and fascinating details of Southern England.
