Rosslare to Fishguard - foot passenger on the ferry

Continuing my travel story - Dublin home to Wiltshire via Rosslare

The railway no longer runs into the ferry terminal at Rosslare - it finishes a few hundred yards short, and it's a walk through to the station car park between forbidding fences and over a level crossing


 


A quiet - a desolate - spot as the only one off the train, and indeed as I walked into the station forecourt / car park, there was but one car there. The window wound down and I was greeted - "Graham - Graham Ellis?" ... and it was the owner of the B&B I had booked into - online - who had come down to the station to save me the walk up the hill; I had added a note of my 21:28 arrival so that he knew when to expect me, and was delighted he had come down with a lift. Yes, I'll certainly give him a name check - St. Martin's B&B - where I enjoyed a pleasant and quiet night's sleep, and a full Iriish breakfast cooked by his morning help, Kelly.

You will appreciate I'm not as good at photographing food as I am at trains:

breakfast


And so down the hill, past the station entrance and along to the ferry port in the morning.


 


And I so much prefer to be able to walk up to the ferry rather than bing bussed on and off the car deck as happens at so many places these days!



A quiet crossing on a beautiful day - though the windows were so filthy that pictures of the sea had to be taken from the upper deck, and bits of the ferry looked a bit like a rust bucket.


 


And so into Fishguard where some 40 foot passengers disembarked.



And lunch in the Fishguard Cafe in the terminal building whie we awaited our onward train - which I'll tell you about in the next episode.
