ferry, ferry good!

It's OK - the title of today's blog is not a typo.....It's just that we seem to have enjoyed a lot of ferry crossings recently - in the Lake District, at Bristol harbourside and most recently, the Itchenor ferry which links the village of Itchenor with Smugglers Lane, Bosham, which is part of Chichester harbour.  

We spent the weekend with our friends Anne and Collin in Chichester and excellent it was too!  On our last visit in September 2009, the occasion was the Goodwood Revival and Steve was half way through his chemo. This year, chemo-free, we enjoyed ourselves beside the seaside with a wander around the village of Bosham, lunch on the terrace of the Ancre Bleu watching the tide come in, a stroll around the harbour and headland to catch the ferry to Itchenor, where Steve and I delighted in the photo opportunities offered by the boatyard.

Beautiful weather, excellent food, plentiful wine, great conversation and the perfect hosts - in short, a wonderful couple of days away from home. Thanks so much Anne and Col!  We look forward to returning the favour in the autumn!

If you want to know more bout our next ferry trip, drop by next week!
