the kids enjoyed their first experience riding on a ferry this past week. it was a relatively short journey between fort fisher and southport but long enough for the kids to have a bit of fun on a ferry. personally, i was sort of glad that the ferry ride was short since the fumes from the boat was a bit much. oh and we managed to get the last spot on the ferry. check out the photo of our minivan squeezed in between two big SUVs.
