Waiting for the Ferry on Harwich Quay as a Stena Ferry passes by
A Stena Line ferry passing Harwich Pier on its way out to sea
To catch the ferry from Harwich to Felixstowe or Shotley, you have to wait at the end of Harwich Pier, naturally. The pier affords great views of boats on the waterways, Felixstowe port with its huge container ships, and passing Stena Line ships on their way to Hoek van Holland, as in this recording. The waves in the harbour weren’t very big, but you can hear the pier squeaking on its mountings as the waves gently move it around.
