Mr Monkey in Portsmouth, 29th August

"They're rather posh for storehouses"

Mr Monkey went to have a quick look at a Landing Craft, Infantry, one of the small historic boats floating in the mast pond. The pond was excavated in 1665 and used to store masts until they were needed on a ship. Being kept underwater prevented the masts becoming brittle. Then Mr Monkey noticed the time, took a look at the Georgian storehouses No. 9, 10 and 11, and set off towards the main gate.
