One of many photo's taken of the sunrise.
Heading towards Beaulieu on a glassy smooth river.
A very average local property!
Heading down river towards the Solent.
Once out in the Solent again, we turned east and headed for Portsmouth, dodging the Red Funnel and Wightlink ferries on the way. More birthday excitement was to come as we entered Portsmouth, a Brittany Ferries vessel was entering the port followed immediately by a Royal Navy frigate being towed/escorted out to sea by fore and aft tugs. While these large vessels were obviously in the main channel, we kept to the small vessel channel on the west side of the entrance passing close to an outgoing pilot boat.
A busy harbour entrance.

What a lot of boats!
