Tuesday 14th/Wednesday 15th April Granny collected us for our few days in Ireland at 7pm, after driving for around an hour we hit rain - lots of rain. It was very heavy rain and poor Granny had to drive through it for a loooong time. After a couple of wrong turns due to roadworks, bad road signs and too much rain we arrived at Pembroke Harbour at 12.30am Weds morning. Luckily it had dried up by then so when we boarded at around 2am and settled down in our cabin (eventually....after the boys had stopped jumping around on the bunks!) we were extremely pleased to hear the Captains voice telling us the crossing should be a pleasant and comfortable one - phew! Fits and bursts of sleep for the next 4 hours and we 'came alongside' at Rosslare harbour at 6.45am. we were off and at Bill and Anns by 7am for a lovely cooked breakfast which was very welcome after all those hours. Hang on in there for part 2 with pics!
