Langstone Harbour In Spring

Posted in Everything Else, General Boating Stuff by Joseph Moore on March 3, 2010

Just a few snaps of Langstone Harbour taken recently. Excuse the phone camera, my proper camera was AWOL at the time and turned up in the car of all places, so I had it with me after all…

It’s a beautiful spot, very quiet compared to the hustle and bustle of Portsmouth just nearby. I guess the acres of mud and sand at low water and the strong tidal streams through the narrow fairway are enough to send most sailors on to Chichester.

    There’s nothing like mud for cooling the blood.

    That’s almost as lovely as my muddy CDYC mooring at the mouth of the Severn.
