Friday 30 December

It was with considerable reluctance that we left our comfortable abode in the dunes and headed for the ferry this morning. The sun was shining, although it was still feeling cold in the wind. The MV Vlieland headed off at 11.45 and quietly carried us back to the bustle of the mainland. We walked to the town centre of Harlingen to catch the train at 2.06pm, and three hours later we jumped off at our familiar stop just outside Arnhem. It was just after 5pm and it was dark. And that was our trip to Vlieland.

It is 50 years ago this year that my father first went to Vlieland.
