Ferry Work

Our new property is located on South A Street. That's it's official name.
Sign Advising of the Ferry Rules
All the locals call it the Ferry Road. Here's a couple of pictures of the ferry. Hand-cranked, no less.
Two Workers Crank the Ferry Each Way
The common courtesy is to once in a while, give them a beer and take over cranking for your trip across, or to just take over the cranking without the beer.

Doesn't have to be done every time. But, they do appreciate it.
There It Is In All Its Glory
It's not hard work, necessarily, but sweaty and I imagine, after a whole shift (the ferry operates 24/7) pretty tiring.

Not very good, but that's all that is available right now.
