Don’t pay the ferryman,
Don’t even fix a price,
Don’t pay the ferryman,
Until he gets you to the other side;”
In the rolling mist, then he gets on board,
Now there’ll be no turning back,
Beware that hooded old man at the rudder,
And then the lightning flashed, and the thunder roared,
And people calling out his name,
And dancing bones that jabbered and a-moaned
On the water. And then the ferryman said,
“There is trouble ahead,
So you must pay me now,” – “Don’t do it!”
“You must pay me now,” – “Don’t do it!”
And still that voice came from beyond,
“Whatever you do,
“Don’t Pay the Ferryman” by ~Chris De Burgh
I’ve always wanted to use those lyrics in a blog post! I didn’t think I’d ever get a chance to, but, I took the pictures for this post while aboard the Peaton Island Ferry at Furillen! I didn’t pay the ferryman…I actually didn’t even see him! Maybe he was on a lunch break! I’ve been on a few ferries in my day! From a little ferry that holds four cars, to the big mama that goes to Newfoundland! The ferry that holds four cars crosses a river and takes about 5 minutes…..the ferry from Sidney, Nova Scotia to Port aux Basques, Nfld holds lots and lots of cars, and trucks, and takes five or six hours. When loading the ferry to go to Newfoundland it made me a little nervous seeing all those big trucks going in, mine included, I wondered how the heck it could keep floating with all that weight! But I made it to the other side safe and dry! Although, even against all warnings, I did pay the ferryman…..before he got me to the other side!
