I have taken the ferry so often over the past 15 years that it has become a chore. I hate to admit it, as it’s such a beautiful trip, but that is how I feel. Or felt.
I just did a round trip with Elliot, and I’ve got a renewed sense of enjoyment for the ride. Now that he’s crawling around and so easily entertained, we just hung out in the children’s play area and had a great time. 90 minutes of playing one-on-one with him — no email, phone or housework distractions. (Although I have to admit on the trip home Greg was with us, so I did take the opportunity to read for a few minutes.)
And lots of interesting kids and parents to chat with as well.
