Hilarious! The ferry wasn't very full so we joked with them about how we saved them a seat, and they made some drama while finding space for all their luggage, then Darren and I got another ice cream and went to sit up on the top deck for a while to check out the views. ...
... Then we had a beef fillet - just medium and cooked to perfection with a delicious gravy with baby roast potatoes, carrots, asparagus and baby corn and just when we thought we couldn't fit anything else in, out comes creme brulee with fresh berries and icecream on top. It was a gastronomic feast. Unfortunately I have no photos as thinking it would be basic fare I hadn't even bothered to take my camera with me.
Time to fall into bed with a very full tummy!
