Our Ferryboat Adventure
Posted by Francesca
As you know from reading yesterday’s Daily Wag, we were at our home in East Hampton, Long Island last weekend. As its name suggests, Long Island is indeed long and at its eastern end, the island is split into the South Fork, where the Hamptons are, and the North Fork. Martha wanted to visit someone on the North Fork and you can get there one of two ways by car. You can inch your way through the horrific Hamptons’ traffic or you can take a much more civilized journey on the ferryboats. Fortunately, that’s what Martha opted for.
1 Yawn, what a nice nap. Say, are we there yet?
2 Hey, I'm confused! The car isn't running, but we're still moving. Franny, what's going on?!
3 Silly Sharkey! You're finally awake. Come on out of the car and enjoy the view with me!
4 We're on the South Ferry! This ferry moves passengers and their cars from Sag Harbor to Shelter Island! Then you drive through Shelter Island and get on the North Ferry, which takes you to Greenport.
5 These ferries save a lot of time and aggravation when you want to get from the South Fork of Long Island to the North Fork. You know how that Hamptons' traffic is - why it's just dreadful!
6 It sure it, Franny. This is a much nicer way to travel. You get the salt air, the nice breeze, and wonderful water views. Wait, wasn't G.K. napping in the car with me? Where did he go? He didn't fall overboard, did he?
7 Of course not, silly! He's in very good hands with Uncle Carlos!
8 Hmm, that sign over there says 'Crew Only' - You wait here, Sharkey. I have an idea.
9 I'm sure the crew won't mind if I join them for this trip. I know my way around a boat and I make an excellent look out dog!
10 Land ho! We're approaching the dock! All passengers return to their vehicles!
11 And everyone, please remember to take all of your personal belongings, such as totes, hats, Chows, and Frenchies!
