Ferry watch

I loved watching the ferries combining in and out of Elba when we were in Portoferraio. They were really frequent because it’s such a popular island. It took all of us a while to get used to being rocked around by the ferry wash (we normally try to avoid areas like this). Even though they slow down as they come into the bay their huge size still displaces a lot of water. Surprisingly, I actually grew to really like it though! It was fun to roll around a little bit for about a minute as they came and went.

I’m fascinated by how such big ships can go so fast!

Ferry in Porto Ferraio

I’ve not been on a ferry yet but I’m sure I will one day. Do you like ferries?

Bisous, Bailey

    Bailey, you’re too close to the edge for comfort and you’re not wearing your lifejacket! Naughty boy! I’ve been on a ferry from Lymington to the Isle of Wight, just a short journey but fun!

    Yes, Bailey, I have been on a ferry. I grew up in a little town in Southern Illinois, USA, named Cave-in-Rock. It is located on the Ohio River which is the border to Kentucky. There has been a ferry operating on the river there for many years. Cave-in-Rock has quite an interesting history also. The cave, for which the town was named, was a river pirate hide out. There have been movies made in the area too. I love my home town.

    Mom and Dad take the ferry from St.Thomas to Tortola whenever they go for vacation in the BVI. We probably will never get to ride on one. You make us very nervous being that close to the edge of the boat when it is rocking and rolling. Good thing you have your sea legs.
