Silent Sunday My Sunday Photo 230815

I still remember my first visit to see HMS Victory, I went with my parents and my brother. I’m guessing I was about 8, I’m sure my Dad will correct me shortly!  The ship looked so large and so beautiful.  In those days the masts were at full height and all the rigging was still in place.  I remember the hammocks, the cannons and the impossibly small spaces that sailors had to live in.  I also remember the rear of the ship, I know, not exactly a nautical term, but it was so different from the rest of the ship, especially when seen externally.

This shot only captures a small part of it, but I also love flags, so it called out to me to be this week’s shot!

I remember one other thing from my first visit, I came home with a HMS Victory pencil.  I wonder whatever happened to that!

Have you been to Portsmouth to see HMS Victory?


About Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 9 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.

  1. What a beautiful photo, I like how the flag proudly sways. We’ve never been there too, it’s something my husband talked a about. x
