UK travel: the Pink Hamble Ferry

Hot pink heaven! Pink punchy paradise gets no purer than this absolute babe of a pink ferry! Travelling in the UK ain't all bad, especially when you've got a colourful treasure chest like this tucked away on the glittering sea. Graham and I had a few days over in Portsmouth last month; it's not a place we've really seen much of and he sweetly took us on a tour of the little pink Hamble Ferry during our time there. For oceanic reasons of course, not just 'cos it's pink....I think if Zac Efron had to moor a boat in Baywatch he would've gone for this little beauty, right?! Note: I'm still trying to edge Baywatch into conversation... but, anyway, this pink ferry.... 
After a blissful ride on the ferry it was quite cold on the other side so I sought shelter, literally, in the pink hideaway, aka the Warsash ferry shelter. The most stunning shelter you've ever seen or the most stunning shelter you've ever seen? To meet and greet the pink ferry in all it's fabulous finery I wore what seems to be my summer uniform; trusty Boohoo boho skirt, red tie up top, berry denim jacket and Zara rhinestone glittery sandals. We spent about half an hour looking around Warsash and then sped back on the ferry for the last return ride of the day. Being stranded there wouldn't have been an issue, although even I couldn't compete with all the pink pretty going on!
During our time in Portsmouth we also spent a day at Lee-on-the-Solent beach and Graham kindly booked us a gorgeous B&B that was made up of a nice bar and was part of a lovely Italian restaurant with nice food and a gorgeous garden. It's always nice to spend time in areas of the UK we've not always explored before, and gems like the Hamble ferry definitely make it worthwhile! If you're over in the Hamble area and fancy a ride on this babealicious beauty, it's only £1.50 per adult. You can find out more about the Hamble ferry on their website. Race you there, fellow Penelope Pitstoppers!

  17. Oh my gosh Sophie, this ferry has literally got your named stamped ALL over it. This ferry and shelter is so unusual and unexpected there; a little ray of sunshine! The dark pink denim jacket you're wearing is super cute by the way; perfect for transitional styling :) hope you're having a lovely week so far!!

  18. I always love seeing the Hamble Ferry gives a splash of colour to the River, although I have never actually taken a ride on it yet, if your ever down this way again, try the Hythe Ferry from Southampton, we're a small village but great for first time tourists.

    Thanks for sharing
