Ferry to the Netherlands

Took the train down from Mums to Harwich yesterday evening, to catch the overnight ferry to Hook of Holland.

I’d semi-planned to cycle from Wrabness, where Grayson Perry’s “House for Essex” is, but couldn’t get off the train there as the short platform meant the doors in the bike carriage didn’t open.

The boat was late arriving, so there was a lot of waiting around before finally boarding. It was still being loaded when I went to bed, but we seem to have made up time overnight, as we’re due in at 8 as scheduled.
