I started to worry about us being stranded for the night at the terminal, with all local motels filled up. I didn't see how the ferry could possibly navigate in through that soup.
All of a sudden, the loudspeakers boomed: "The Joseph and Clara Smallwood, now arriving". I stared towards the dock intently, seeing and hearing nothing. Then, like a ghostly apparition, the ferry sort of just materialized before our eyes. After unloading, and us loading, I was never so happy to settle down in our cabin for the night. We arrived back in North Sydney right on schedule.
okay on the blue!
