Whites Ferry

Have you ever been on a cable operated ferry… if you have been to Whites Ferry then you have ๐Ÿ™‚OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A few weeks back my mom, step-father, and I went on this neat little ferry in Maryland.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It starts out on one side of the water…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The cars load up… I think it holds 15 cars at a time…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It then starts across towards you…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It gets closer and closer…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You can really start to see the cable the closer it comes…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The cableย pulling the ferryย throughย the water is interesting to watch…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You see the cable tightening as the ferry comes closer…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Then the ferry is almost on your side…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Then all the cars load up…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And you start back the other way…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You get a nice 2-3 minute ride…

Then you are on the other side and driving off…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

    I used to love going on Whites Ferry! When we lived in Maryland, we would sometimes take the ferry to see my grandparents in Virginia. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m sure I’ve been on one of these before, but bugger me if I can remember where or when. They are very cool, and your pictures are neat. Looks like fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a fun experience and a trip back in time. I’ve never seen one these except in a John Wayne movie. ๐Ÿ™‚
