If you haven’t taken this free ferry boat ride you ought to sometime.
lt is a scenic ride across beautiful water.
If you were to do this same route by driving from point A to point B, the drive would take over an hour.
The beauty of short cuts.
Knotts Island is actually a peninsula and is just about the northeastern most spot in North Carolina.
From there to the ocean is only a few miles (if you have a boat or like to wade).
If you were to drive from Knotts Island to the NC beach right near it, the drive would probably take 1 1/2 hours.
So, short cuts are pretty nice indeed!
