Portland

image hosted on flickr

Last Saturday I took my parents to the Isle of Portland, commonly known and signposted simply as Portland. Portland's on the south coast of Britain in the county of Dorset. Portland was a major base for the Royal Navy until very recently.

Credit to my Dad for taking the photo's taken from inside the car:
