The Ferry, Cherbourg to Poole - June 11, 2008

Our previous three channel crossings had all been between Dover and Calais so, particularly since we were on the Cherbourg Peninsular, we decided to do something different. The route from Cherbourg to Poole is 80 miles - almost four times the Dover-Calais trip - which suggested a lengthy trip. But wait, there is an express ferry that completes the crossing in two hours, slightly quicker than the Dover-Calais trip and with assigned seating to boot - Whoopee! See here for boat ride views.

The English side is much prettier than the French side, a whole lot less industrial!!
