On a hot day, nothing could be better than taking the ferry across the estuary, and then cycling through the forest. The ferry service is excellent, and the short voyage gives excellent views of the bay.

Left on time and found the whole ship to be neat, tidy and clean. -- in fact shipshape in every respect. Cordial greeting by crew and efficient car parking.

The ferry is large and clean and runs regularly relevant to the time of the year. Just be careful of the last crossing as they finish quite early.
