Why Is It Called A Ferry?



One of the many questions posed by Seth as we made our way from the tip of Cape Hatteras to the edge of Ocrakoke. I'm just glad no one slipped off the rear into the boat's wake. Just kidding, Nana! Safety first!

Hi Jordan, I'm a frequent reader, infrequent commenter (although I was a grateful beneficiary of your "Nie" CD this past winter, which was awesome!) but had to tell you that I spent 2 weeks every summer as a child on the OBX and my parents live there now, on the sound. September/October is a great time to go, as the crowds thin and the weather is perfect. For years, my favorite thing to do has been to get up very very early (4 am) and trek up to Jockey's Ridge to watch the sun rise. It's amazing. May not be practical with little ones, but if you ever have a babysitter, it is a wonderful romantic activity! All best.

Why IS it called a Ferry? I love Lucy with her banana, always with her banana.

Because Ferrys and Fairys transport you to MAGICAL places

Good question: Old English:ferian, meaning to carry. I LOVE ferries. Remember the ferry in Nantucket?
