ABOARD SOUTHPORT ( N.C. ) FERRY
[ FOR BETTER RESOLUTION, CLICK ON IMAGE ]
We're aboard the Southport Ferry which is bound for Fort Fisher, North Carolina. We like the whole concept of the automobile ferry and sought this one out in the lower Cape Fear area of North Carolina. The ferry extends our range, covers ground we cannot on our own.
The captain of the ferry doesn't let you drive off the ramp over open water, but we did feel just a tiny bit as if we were an F-16 on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier and ready to launch into the wind. The cool wind in your face aboard the ferry is a welcome change from the still hot air on land this time of year.
Speaking of hot air, we might have been a tad guilty of some of that ourselves in the previous postings. Those who followed our accounts of the Ireland trip may be asking yourselves whether we did truly find gigantic trucks to pose with the ferry in Ireland. Or..was that an exact replica model of the GT.
Of course, there's always the possibility that we've found a toy ferry and some miniature humanoids for this picture. Actually, the little folks weren't that hard to find, it was the tiny tank tops which gave us a fit.
