Ferry trying to ram us? - Portsmouth

Ferry trying to ram us?

"Paddlewheel" ferry

The ferry "Carrie B" a replica sternwheel riverboat departs from in front of Waterside every half hour at quarter of and quarter after, and takes 15 minutes. It costs about $1.00 and senior citizens get a discount. We first 'ran into' the ferry on our trip down in 2000, and finally in the spring of 2004, we actually rode the ferry. Except for the first picture, the others are of that trip in 2004
