My Own Darling,

         I had a good journey

here really although it seemed

a long time. I had to wait

until afternoon for the boat +

so had a walk along the sea

front + then lunched. The

crossing was very calm. I

found that the train did

not go until the following

morning so booked a

comfortable bed + then had

a walk round the town.

I got an excellent tea - lots

of nice French cakes. Very

indigestible I expect but

still very good. After a

good nights rest I caught

the train + had a corner

seat all the way up. The 

train travelled at the

usual rate + the stops
