At the end of my cycle vacation, as I was waiting in Harwich to board the ferry back to The Netherlands, there was a small army of old World War 2 vehicles also waiting to go to the Netherlands. They were going to Arnhem for the 70 year anniversary of the battle of Arnhem. Not a typical freight for this ferry. It made the wait much better.

This Drowned Pirate (from Pirates of the Caribbean) was one of the life statues this year.
