Day 2: Haslemere to Portsmouth

Tuesday April 5, 2005, 62 km (39 miles) – Total so far: 154 km (96 miles)

We enjoyed another delicious breakfast in Haslemere courtesy of Judy. The Sadlers had plotted a great route to the sea for us and let us borrow their map of West Sussex. The route was a bit hilly, but only 62 km, so we arrived in Portsmouth fairly early. I used to live down here as a student so we cycled around some places I knew and ate some chips on the seafront.

As I write this (at 8pm) our ferry’s departure is delayed, but we’re on the boat or 2 days so I guess they’ll catch up on the schedule.
