The Proteus ferry ...

Its my favourite ferry boat ...

There is a reason for this, and I was reminded of it this morning ...

"So the Proteus was lifting the car ramp, to depart Volos this afternoon at 14:32pm.

A passenger raced along the quayside, having been released from the hospital - Just 14 minutes earlier, and having made a frantic dash across Volos, only to see the ferry departing.

The crew did not know this ...

However someone saw the dash across the quayside, from a car to catch the boat, and they lowered the ramp.

Reaching into their bag to pay the officer for the ticket, only to find that the purse, was still in a friends car, back on the port. What now for the ticket less passenger.

The rest as they say is history, but a big thank you to the Captain and crew of the Proteus" ...
