Great Ferry Experience!
      #1597543 - 07/07/14 08:30 AM (173.73.61.63)

Decided to cross over into Maryland to spend the weekend with my sister's family, we missed the ferry that crosses the Potomac River by just a minute or 2....sound familiar!



The trips on the Gen. Jubal A. Early aka Whites Ferry take less than 5 minutes No biggie, the weather was perfect, nice breeze overlooking the Potomac. Once General Early safely glided us across this shallow section of the Potomac we enjoyed breathing fresh country air at my sisters, God Bless America on this 4th of July!





Couple nice days of relaxing, playing baseball, swimming, eating watermelon and of course drinking beer! Arrived back at the General, never once doubting his ability to be on time and in perfect operating condition....I have my fingers and toes crossed for such an experience via STT/Tortola in just 12 days!

Ha! Guess we should have known you weren't talking about the BVI! Sounds like a nice time!

Hey Beerman - that ferry is about 15 minutes from my house in Poolesville!
Small world.

We always enjoy the experience of taking that little ferry at Whites Ferry. Beautiful countryside out there.
