While it might be hard for me to get out of bed, what is harder is getting the family in the car.
As soon as the doors are closed we are off.
And as we head south what was darkness turns into lovely blue skies.
The traffic is great up to a point, a point where the sat nav wants to do a a diversion via st. Alblums. I have never been to St. Albums however on this occasion I get to see even the high high street. Which one can only believe the sat nav thinks is as such a standstill as the M1 is. Not that we will find that out.
On the otherside of the detour we stop for a comfort stop and a cup of tea. Here at the service we stop at, one of my least favourite services, located before the Dartford crossing, they are pretty much shut for refurbishment. Along with the disabled parking spaces.
Refreshed we head across the Thames and towards Dover.
Sometime later we are by the sea awaiting our boat.
When the wait is over we are called onto the ferry.
Today it is the big one, The Spirit of Britain.
oohhh such a big belly.
and with that
We are parked by the front doors.
We sit by the front window and relax. For its size, there are only about ten cars on it.
We have some dinner.
Which is basic food fare.
We are called back to our cars for the race to begin to leave
