I woke up, showered and had breakfast quickly then checked out of the caravan park and drove to the ferry terminal. I had to be there to get on the ferry an hour before hand. I parked the ute then walked in to the check in hut and checked in picked up my ticket. I walked backed to the ute and drove on to the ferry, I was told to park up the end of the ferry because I was one of the first cars on the ferry. After parking the ute I walked to the ...
