... in at the Bluebridge Ferry terminal just in time and made ourselves comfortable for the wait to be called to boarding. The ferry was late for some reason and we ended up waiting for almost two hours, but finally we were allowed on board.

The journey down the Sound is very scenic - someone likened it to being on the Norweigian Fiords. Before heading out into the open sea it really narrows and you feel you could touch the land on either side of you.
