Visit to Portsmouth

May-Day bank holiday saw us staying with Hannah and Dan(again!).
Phil and I attended Chris Davis's retirement dinner at HMS Nelson and had a lovely evening catching up with old friends.
Hannah's Dan was camping on the Isle of Wight with his best men - so Hannah was glad of our company. While we were dining she took Lydia, Julia and Lydia's friend Molly to the fair on Southsea common. We ended our weekend with a barbeque lunch at our dear friends the Hackers house. The first BBQ of the season!

It was also a delayed birthday celebration for Jonathan!
