Hovercraft Day 14/04/2007


Still felt rough as I drove out to Southend for the hovercraft day that Rita had organised for her birthday. Found the place ok and we were made very welcome by the glide3 people with snacks and drinks. Rita of course had first go, and coped no problem, Chris and Julie also coped very well and cracked around. Ballu struggled a bit with hearing the instructions as the helmet radio didn't get through her hair very well, but still got plenty of time on the water. I had a go next with helmet cam on, it was very good fun, I chased a few ducks and nearly hit a swan oops. It was actually quite a long time we had all spent near the lake but it was such a glorious day that this wasn't a problem. Can't wait for Rita's next birthday.
