And now for something completely different

I was in Portsmouth this morning on an errand and I couldn't resist my customary trip down to the harbour to see the boats. What a sky there was.

A little group of families stood atop the old round tower at the harbour entrance with little children excitedly waiting to wave a welcome to their daddies returning home on HMS Cornwall. Apparently before stopping off at Devonport on the way home to Pompey she has been down in the gulf keeping the Somali pirates at bay.

Here she comes.
Safe into the harbour just like Herbie getting back to Iver (well, a bit).
