We do like to be beside the seaside (as told by fatwomble)

So much so that we decided to hold the November Meet in Southsea. Zak made the suggestion of Mozzarella Joes right on the seafront and as we had been neglecting the Pompy crowd a date was fixed.

I arrived early to check out the sights, having not been to the amusements for about 23 years I quickly found that I had not been missing anything.

Despite 18 people signing up, we ended up with a more intimate group of 10, the service was a little on the slow side but the food was good.

For those of you not of a nautical nature you may not have been aware that the QE2 was making her last voyage to Dubai were she will be turned into a floating hotel, therefore there were plenty of people about waiting for her to go by. After a couple of false alerts when a passenger ferry went by we finally got to see the QE2, unfortunately nowhere near the shore (I think the Captain may have been a little over cautious having grounded the ship on a sandbank earlier).


All too soon the evening draw to a close and we all tried to pay our bits of the bill, just after Beak and the Brodys left the proprietor rushed outside desperately searching for someone, who gave that duff £20.

There won't be a meet in December as we have the Christmas meal on the 13th, normal service will resume in January.

Thanks to everyone for the fantastic attendance we have had since the first meeting at Ashurst, lets hope we can keep up the momentum next year.
