As a consequence of alarms and the aforementioned, we were up and showering by 06:45, we needed to leave the boat by 08:10 to give us plenty of time to walk to the bus stop. As mentioned last week, the bus stop is conveniently close to the supermarket Kvickly, which amongst other attributes, provides a wifi hotspot and a cafe, so I took the pc with me in order to download my mail and upload the last week’s blog (apologies for the inordinate gap in updates, but there are no hotspots when you’re at anchor!), this I would do once Helen was on her way
Mail downloaded and blog updated and shopping done, we headed back to the boat. We then got a call from John, Julie’s brother, to tell us that he had had his pocket picked in Victoria bus station and he’s lost all his Kroner, return train tickets and credit cards and E111 card. What an awful start to the holiday for him! At least Susie had the plane tickets and some money, so as long as they can get 100 kroner to pay for the bus from the airport to Ebeltoft, they’ll be fine. Apparently, with regard to the E111 card, there is a number one can call if one needs medical assistance in the EU and have lost your card, so at least they will be covered in the unhappy event that they would need a doctor.
We spent the remainder of the day reading, boat cleaning , email writing and generally relaxing, ending up with a DVD, Married to the Mob with Michelle Pfeiffer which we enjoyed, whilst the wind still moaned outside and rattled new loose bits on the boat.
