Today, we took a bus tour from our dock in Portsmouth to Truro. I learned that Portsmouth is an island city. It was the site of the D-Day landings and served as headquarters for Dwight D. Eisenhower. There is lots of history here. We drove up to a high point where the ground was made out of chalk to get an overview of the area.

On our way back, we drove through little quaint villages and stopped at the sea, where we saw one of England‘s longest seaside boardwalks, remnants of a military fort, and a cool lighthouse. 
We drove past a new, built-up shopping area, which we returned to on a shuttle. You can identify this area by looking at the tall spinnaker that they built.
