Half an hour from home and we found the traffic.
We managed to get the 7:15am ferry. After pulling up last night at a very flustered French lady's ferry gate, we were told the next ferry was at 7:15 and we would have to stay the night at the ferry port. Not the first time we have had to do this, about this time last year was the same story. She looked relieved when we weren't bothered and kept thanking us for not being annoyed. Poor woman. She said the hold up was the police being strict at passport control, pretty odd as we saw nothing...they managed to cause a 2 hour plus delay for most people. I would hate to have done her job last night...every English person I heard getting told they had to get the morning ferry swore at her. I even heard one lady moan this morning that they just left her in her car all night, think she must have wanted tucking in or something. That said, I can remain smug while we bed down in a cosy bed eh ;)
We got off the ferry and headed over to Aylesham to collect a Golf cylinder head that Djespie aka Dave had been looking after for us since we left. Thanks for the brew Dave.
After, christian did the boring driving while I bored him with what we needed to get done when we get home.
All in all, a fab holiday, the closer we get to home, the more the blues are setting in.
The end ;)
