The hire car was parked just 200 yards away. I was meant to walk this short distance down the road and drive it back to the house.
Instead I embarked on a road trip with colleagues TF and RS, and my sister J. This took us overseas to dodgy driving on wide American highways. We came face to face with the oncoming traffic that approached us on the ‘wrong’ side of the road.
Our return brought us back to Leith. We simply hoped to park by the docks, but somehow ended up in the queue for the Herald of Free Enterprise. When we found ourselves on deck, little did we know that we were about to set sail on a doomed passenger ferry, never to return.
