the best bit of the trip to Portsmouth?.

We all went to Portsmouth for the W/E and were so lucky with the weather it was glorious,and what do you think was the really best bit ever? Was it seeing the graceful Victory? Was it these gruesome surgical instruments?
Or these leather fire buckets?

Grandma enjoyed looking at the embroidery on Nelsons`s cot linen

but it was not that.

Was it the excitement of seeing the Mary Rose?

or Nelson skewed?

No none of those interesting historical things it was these "hamster balls" which after about 10 -12 goes Olive was really good at and could run over the water having a fantastic if tiring time at the cost of about £40 to her doting Grandparents,so much for history!

What a great day out, I've always fancied having a go in one of those balls, but i think it's probably harder than it looks.
Wonderful embroidery.

I'm impressed and horrified at the same time.How safe is it? Is it attached to dry land?
