Right, Saturday would involve a sunny stroll down the Millennium walkway and a trip to the Arcades in Southsea where you could spend just a little too much! Then, on Sunday, I’d visit Gunwharf Quays and the Spinnaker Tower, of course! I remember a special graduation visit with my mum recently and the view was just amazing.
