You may have seen our recent photos including one of the Interislander Ferry leaving Picton. Yes we have to admit that we have become so laid back on this holiday that we are as they say near horizontal. The thing is that our diary schdules our travels and for some reason the diary indicates that our pre booked and paid for crossing to North Island was down for today Monday 3 March. Unfortunately the tickets we bought were for Sunday 2 March. Doh!!!!
So as we walked out on the headland yesterday and watched, admiringly, the sight of the ferry working its way up the Sound we should have been on it! It was not until later that night whilst finishing our previous blog that we checked our documents to be sure everything was in order for the following day and we realised we had missed the boat, quite literally! We had an anxious night until we could contact the Customer Services Centre this morning but in fact they could not have been more helpful. We were told not to worry and to get on the 2.00pm Ferry that day and enjoy our holiday. They would sort it all out and we would not have to pay twice. And indeed as we are posting this update we are sitting on the ferry waiting to depart.
The embarrassing thing is that given our post 60 age we are entitled to the Senior rate...... What we did not realise was that also seems to include having Senior moments. Ah well sit back and enjoy that's what we think as Seniors these days.
