Interesting Postcards

The Viking Ship and Hovercraft,
Pegwell Bay,

At first this looks like a tremendously exciting race between three very different modes of transport with, ironically, the most archaic just in the lead. Then you realise that the Maxi and the longboat are parked, so the hovercraft is going to wipe the floor with them. I travelled to France on a hovercraft once. As I recall it was like riding a spinning washing machine over a ploughed field. They look great though, don't they? And so much faster than stationary vehicles.

  1. Well done prose, Chief. You've got the pithy observational benign snark down to a science. Not mean-spirited and clever, this is one of many aspects of your writing which i quite enjoy.
    Again, well done.
