Today, we will leave the Romans behind, but I may come back to them…
Whilst searching for something else, I’ve found a few prints from 1998, not great when scanned, but hey…a window into the past. I had completely for about these images. Scanned from prints again, so not great, but they definitely evoke a past time…..the Hovercraft ceased running to France in 2000.
This morning, we go back to July 1998 (which may have been our last, and if not, penultimate trip on one of these vessels). I took morning and evening views of a Hovercraft. I can vaguely remember the sound as they came into port. Then I would take a quick photo and we would queue up to board, and off to Boulogne we would go. A good lunch and some sightseeing, and some food shopping, perhaps. Return in the evening, disembark and an image of the departing craft as it returned to its French port in the setting sun,
Not the most salubrious vessel, but it was a convenient way to get across to France quicker than the ferry
