David and Pop-Pop's Europe Trip
Dover, England

The ferry across the channel was huge and impressive. In my youth I had been on the ferry to Catalina once, but that was more of a boat than a ferry. I had twice been on the ferry to Balboa, but that only held a half dozen cars and their families, and went a very short distance. This, on the other hand, was not a ferry boat but a ferry ship. It had lifeboats of its own.
