Two ferries

Coming home last week from the christening of the new ferry at Rising Sun, I took the river road to Maysville so I could, among other things, watch the Anderson and Augusta ferries in action. I'm a bit of a ferry fan, and I like to watch and/or ride them when I can.

First, the Anderson ferry on the western end of Cincinnati.

Then the Augusta ferry at Augusta, Ky.

Let's try that last one in two versions of black and white. One straight and one artsy.

My wife and I rode the Augusta ferry from Ohio to Kentucky and back as pedestrians. Although the day was sunny and hot, the ride on the river was cooler. The breeze helped.
