Hometown Memories-Ferry Boat, Ruth


Ferry Boat Ruth

This is my rendition of the Ferry Boat, Ruth coming to the dock in Winter Harbor.  I believe that this Ferry Dock was located on the Summer Harbor Road and the Ferry ran from BarHarbor to Winter Harbor and back.  I love the lines of this boat.  It’s funny that Winter Harbor once again has ferry service to BarHarbor.  It sure will be interesting to see how we can continue to benefit from having the new services and not become another BarHarbor.  I know we do not have the same amenities and landscape as MDI but the Schoodic peninsula sure does have a lot to offer.  The access to the raw beauty Down East is another area of potential growth.  That word-growth-good or bad????
