Nothing too taxing to I think. More of a photoblog of various modes of transport the pup and I used today. Try to be precise with the guesses.

And just one guess each please for the first 24 hours.

1.Fareham Station, bridge over A27. paul7575


2. Goldsmith Avenue, Fratton (with a bus a long way from Bristol!) brooklea


3. School Road level crossing, Fawley Branch, Hythe. bradshaw.


4. Gosport Bus Station. CyclingSid


5. Hythe Pier Railway. ellendune.


6. Hythe Ferry on its way to Hythe. eightonedee


7. Gosport Ferry, departing Portsmouth Harbour. ray951/LiskeardRich/stuving


And finally. Is there a rhyme for Gulls like there is for Magpies? If so, what's 13? Grin (Hythe promenade, sorta guessed by grahame)

Your gulls look like stump.trade.shovels if "what three words" is precise enough for you.

13 is a baker's dozen, or half alphabet. At the seaside, the collective name for a lot of gulls is "a nuisance of gulls".

Pretty close with stump.trade.shovels. The 13 were actually lined up at atomic.tested.afford

I'll refrain from posting the geographic location as it'll give away answers to others. The gulls were a news style 'And Finally...' rather than a location to be guessed, but I admire the twist of using what3words. There's an idea brewing for a future quiz...

I typed stump.trade.shovel (no 's' on the end) into what3words initially. Pretty certain I wasn't in the dense forest north of the River Assemetquagan in New Brunswick, Canada today.

7. On a Whightlink ferry parked at Portsmouth Harbour Station Pier, looking out towards the harbour entrance (with a bit of you know what sneaking into the edge of the picture).

Ferry, yes. Wightlink, no. Below PMH, yes.

In the words of the recently departed Marvin Lee Aday; "Two out of three ain't bad." Tongue

Feel free to guess ferry company again.
