Fierce winds, having raged overnight, continued for a good part of the day, sending us to Milford on Sea’s coastline,
to photograph the ocean with its spraying, creamy, waves pounding the breakwaters and the sea wall.
Jackie watched the play of my writhing jacket.
A formation of distant kite surfers took us off to Keyhaven for a closer look. Hurst Castle appears in this last image.
Like speedboats the surfers sent up their own spray; wrestled on the shingle with the kites flung into life by the blustery winds; and performed silhouetted aerobatics. Meanwhile sea defence trucks travelled along the spit.
Once the kites were in the air and the time had come for departure the surfers set about battling to bring them down, sometimes one aeronaut anchoring another.
We also enjoyed a closer look at Hurst Castle.
This evening we dined on Mr Chan’s Hordle Chinese Take Away excellent fare with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I drank Mendoza Malbec 2019.
Now I am going to settle down to watch the last Six Nations rugby match, between France and Scotland.
