We’ve been planing this ferry ride for months, but it never seemed to work out until now. I think it worked out because we didn’t “really” plan it. We took the kids on the ferry from Orient, NY to New London, CT. They were excited about everything from waiting in lines, driving onto the ferry, holding their tickets (such a big person thing to do), getting a snack, running up and down the aisles, looking out the windows, hiding, going around the poles and of course checking out the top deck! Little things are such great adventures.
