The kids get 2 weeks off from school for March Break, & now that we live so close to my parents we were able to join them for their annual trip to Long Beach, Washington!
The trip to Grandpa & Grandma's house always includes a ferry ride. These boats happen to have puzzles on them, which are a great way to spend the time.
But an even better way to spend the time is going up in the bridge of the ship. Don't know how to get a private tour? Just have a cute kid with you & tell them to ask someone who works on the ship to show you!
My dad has been travelling on these ferries for over 50 years, & he had never been up to the bridge before. It was a good field trip for all of us!
