A field outside of Belson, Corrington. A ball-hover is waiting.

Spoiler

Sholmes: “Hello! My name is Sholmes. Herlock Sholmes – and you are?”

Alberto: “We are Alberto & George da Pontelli. We operate this ball-hover, the 'Spirit of Eslandola'.”

Sholmes: “Impressive! How fast can you get us to Pontelli?”

800x489.jpg

Alberto: “If the winds keep blowing like they are now we should reach Pontelli in just a few hours.”

Sholmes: “And if the wind changes?”

Alberto: “Then it can take a few weeks. And we would see other places in the meantime.”

800x600.jpg

Sholmes (shrugging): “Right. Let’s do this. No ship would offer a faster alternative.”

Alberto: “Welcome on board the ball-hover to Pontelli. My first officer George and I will be at your service during the ride.

  Our cruising altitude will be around 100 meters or 347,5 Corrington feet.”

Alberto: “Let me get you acquainted with the safety features of this ball-hover. In case of an emergency, you jump off the sides. If the ground is close enough, that is.
And smoking is not permitted at all times during the voyage. Are you collecting miles?"

Dr. Sonwat: "What?"

Alberto: "Nevermind."

George: "Oooh-ooh."

Alberto: "Right, George, I was just about to mention it: In rare cases some passengers might not like the experience of turbulences."

Sholmes (humming "Fly Like an Eagle"): “I think we will be fine.”

(The ball-hover is shaking a bit in the wind)

Dr. Sonwat: “Not so sure. Could we book a good-old-fashioned ship for the way back, please?”

I am happy that Alberto & George da Pontelli are also part. It's interesting to see familiar people from other stories. The Spirit of Eslandola is a magnificently ball-hover! :pir-huzzah2:  Funny portrayed as Dr. Sonwat has a green head. :pir_laugh2:

Thanks. I actually thought it would be easier to make Dr. Sonwat turn green. It is a photoshop effect and it still looks strange to me :pir_laugh2:

The Eslandolans fly now? We need such a balloonship also! 

They have been flying for 7 years now :pir-grin:

I don't know what a balloon is. This is called ball-hover because it hovers. And has 1-2 balls of phlogiston. (it does not hoover, apparently)

I know haha. I just was too exited about the builds and story :pir_laugh2:

(Drop some coconuts anyway! :pir_laugh2: Maybe this is the reason why so many people are hit by coconuts?! Damn Pontelli flyers :pir_laugh2:)
