So, the ferry, oh yes. Guess we might as well ride out this theme of water in this post. I have never in my life taken a ferry from one country to another. I must say it was a pretty cool experience. We drove our rental car right onto the boat, put it in park, and walked up to find some seats. Man, if airplane travel could be as relaxed and easy that!

This post is going to be about taking the ferry, but I’m having trouble gathering my thoughts as I sit down to write. Yesterday we were supposed to be back in the U.S., but Hurricane Sandy seems to have changed our plans, and England has taken us hostage until Saturday. My prayers have been with all of our friends on the East coast during this crazy time.
In our three hour journey we slept, did school, I blogged, the kids watched a movie. It was fantastic. The ride there was smooth sailing with beautiful skies. The ride back was a little more choppy but still nice.
We spent most of our time inside but we did venture outside for a bit to see the sights. Just beautiful. I didn’t mention it on this blog, but before we left S. Africa, I had to turn down a Disney cruise. Major bummer. The kids would have loved it. The irony of it is that the cruise was the same week as our time in Ireland. Maybe not a full on cruise, but it was a ferry ride to another country. God is good with a little sense of humor that makes me smile.
Have any of you taken a ferry before? What did you think?
