It was delayed by half an hour so we were a tired bunch when we got back to the mainland, and hungry. 8 of us went together to eat, beer and lamb shank restored me, but we didn't get back to our accommodation until after 10.

Whilst waiting for Clive and Rosie to turn up, the 2 Belgian girls also checked in to the hostel, said hi and then we never saw them again that night.
