    Default Flying Fish Xmas Cruise!

    Christmas greetings all!



    Just got back from my mum and dad's place down in Normandy. Had spent xmas down there, and decided that this time, i needed to take a hover to play around on the lake their house overlooks....



    Well, you've got to really haven't you?



    Nelson brought a double trailer down so we had a brace of Marlin's to play with. The lake's around three miles long and usually alive with fishermen - plus heavily restricted on speed and boat type. But..... as it's christmas we thought we'd probably get away with a little bending of the rules. 'Specially as Nelly had the bright idea of disguising ourselves...its chrimbo after all! The french are waaaay more reasonable and flexible on such things than the officious NIMBY idiots you run into over here!



    But, what a result! The lake turned out to be frozen. And neither of us had ever driven on ice before. We chucked the craft in, and spent a couple of hours tearing up and down at god-knows what silly speeds, it just gets faster and faster on ice and stopping can be....interesting!



    Anyway, all went well, the few solitary christmas day cars and walkers we saw were brought to a standstill with people waving and cheering - fantastic fun!



    Merry Chrimbo (belated!) to you all and a very Happy New Year!
