Dockyard Deadline

Our pass for Portsmouth Dockyard expires early next month. We’ve had a pass pretty much non stop for 6 years now.  However we’re finding we’re visiting less and less.  Once upon a time we’d spend sunny afternoons being pirates on the deck of the Warrior and wet ones in Action Stations on an almost weekly basis.  Now we’ve done Explosion a couple of times this year but that’s about it.  Think I am going to let our pass go for now,

With that in mind we thought it was worth a last hurrah.  Although we forgot how much was there so looks like we need to find another day!

We started with the Warrior.

Did the obligatory time in Action Stations, where the new assault course is open and I wavered on the not replacing pass thing.

Last stop was M33.  We’ve only done that one once and 2 mins after we were on the ship Sam had turned green and said he wasn’t feeling well.  So it was nice to do it again feeling a lot less stressed. We stopped and watched the video on Gallipoli and then stopped for a lot longer to talk about it.  Up on deck one of the volunteers uncovered the ship’s gun and gave Sam a lesson in how to fire it (cripes!).
