Dateline: 28 May 2011
Dover – Dunkirk Ferry.
I read the ticket on the Ferry.
“You must be checked in 45 minutes before departure.” Now I understood the angst on the young lady’s face. What I thought was perfect timing was actually 45 minutes late.
And my playful “Can’t get my gloves off to give you my ticket” was not, for her, the least bit amusing.
At least I hadn’t stopped to refuel in Dover. Woulda missed it. Even better, getting to the Ferry at a specific time is the last deadline I will have to meet for sometime to come.
Onward then, Dunkerque and petrol.
