Portsmouth, England is the home of the HMS Victory, The Warrior (first steel hull ship), and the Mary Rose Museum. Emily and I went to Portsmouth on a day trip out of London to attend their Christmas Festival. If you get a chance go to this festival and stay until the end, the town folk parade and sing back to town from the lighting of the Christmas Tree. Here are a few pictures of our visit to the historical city.
