#a history of my world in 100 objects #19

Ferry boat. I am no sailor. I am equipped for tomorrows crossing to Jersey with travel bands & if necessary sea sickness tablets! Ferry boats? My world? Yes. They have taken us to the western isles of Scotland many times, to Tiree, Coll, Mull, the Uists & Harris/Lewis & helped shape great holidays & wonderfully memories. In North America they have taken us to the wilds of Vancouver Island & the Olympic peninsula. We will board a ferry tomorrow to take us to the Channel Islands of Jersey & Guernsey. This will be our 5th trip on these fast cat ferries. Not my favourite but they offer a fast crossing. We have been on big ferries across the North Sea en route to ski holidays, we have been on little ferries like the little Glenelg ferry from the Isle of Skye. Our recent holiday to the Orkney Isles involved one of the smartest ferry we have been on. Shame it was so foggy we missed the view to match! So #19, ferry boats!
