Yes, there really is a place called Spitbank Fort
and that's where the peeps went…….
They starting building it in 1860
to defend Portsmouth harbour from Napoleon
no, not that one, his nephew, Louis Napoleon
butt, with all the budget cuts etc, the messing about politicians do
the threat had long gone before it was finished
There was never a shot fired in anger from it!
And I bet it did feel like Alcatraz to the 260 soldiers stationed
on it for 6 months at a time!!!
(they chose peeps that couldn't swim
to stop them swimming back to shore!)
There were hooks everywhere on the walls
for them to hang their hammocks from
Every space was used
Luckily, Mum and Dad's room was more luxurious
(although Mum could have made the bed before taking photo!)
Dad was very happy to find a guitar
which he immediately set about tuning
Mum was happy to find the bottle of champagne,
which she immediately set about drinking!
And look what she saw from her window…..
(hope you're feeling a bit better Reilly)
Talking of boats…..
Mum and Dad sailed past this on their way to the Fort
It's taking part in the America's Cup Race this year
You saw it here first pups!
All this took place WITHOUT me!!!!
But don't worry…I did get to share this….
Mum's cake from work….A PUG Burfday cake!
They nose her so well don't they, hehe.
Loves and licky kisses
