65g – Southsea Part IV

The Southsea Hovercraft to the Isle of Wight only runs once an hour, so we were lucky to see it arrive just as we approached the hoverport.  Look!  Here it comes!

Southsea HovercraftIt throws up quite a lot of spray, doesn’t it?  Have a closer look.

Southsea HovercraftAs the hovercraft came in the spray came in too.  Those standing close up realised a little too late, but the children seemed to enjoy it…
