With the morning sun going a bit cloudy, the reports of potential rain were looking like they might be correct, but Shades, Echo, and I were undeterred. We could handle a spot of weather. Thankfully, as we disembarked at Portchester station, the threats were unfounded. The platform was quite narrow so we had to get rather close to the edge to get our shot. Once taken, we took a walk to the shops to get drinks and things for the day ahead. With a spring in the step and the sun starting to win, we waited the few minutes left for our train before heading on to the next stop on our list.
