We arrived in Portland to see numerous dinghys, and keelboats out in the harbour practising for the Olympics.
As you can see from the photograph, Sue was really enjoying the spectacle.
About half way across the harbour we spotted a trio of 420's doing battle.
The following morning we decided to get the bus to Portland Bill, and get a look at the tide race. At the bus stop a workman was starting to put up a row of flag poles - by the time we returned the row of poles was as long as the blue fence in the photograph.
The open topped bus gave us a great view of Chesil beach, and the brackish laggon inside.
The weather was fine, hot, and sunny all day, with very good visibility. The lighthouse stood out really well againsy the blue sky.
This is Pulpit Rock, with a beautifully engraved plaque warning climbers that they attempted it at their own risk !
This is the view from our berth, back towards Portland, with the Olympic sailing village at the base of the hill on Osprey Quay.
Need to get up at 03-00 tomorrow to get round the Bill at slack water, and carry a fair tide towards Brixham, so signing off now, and going to bed.
