The Ferry's In at Russell



Another one from Russell, this time it's the Fuller's Ferry that runs between here and Paihia Wharf.  Unfortunately because of Covid since February there have been a decrease in people travelling especially since no one has been able to travel in or out of Auckland while it was in level 3.  We watched as this one was going back and forth empty - a sad way of today's world at the moment.

Linking up with Our World Tuesday, Pictorial Tuesday, Tuesday Treasures and My Corner of the World.

I'm missing the old ways to be honest, even though I hate crowds.

Soon, I hope, would love a trip to Russell.

I hope the time will come soon when it will be full on every crossing.

Strange to think of it being empty. When I traveled on it last year it was packed, with cars left behind to wait for the next ferry.

Nice shot.

That's one of the ferries I have travelled on. Russell, in particular, is a very attractive place.

How on earth do they stay in business?

Great photo. Hoping this dreaded virus to be over soon. Yes, sad to see the businesses losing money and those that are having to close. Have a great week.

It must be so hard trying to run a business these days.

A wonderful shot.

I'll be thankful when we can get back to some semblance of normalcy. Even a passenger or two on the ferry would be welcome.

It is rather sad, but I have to hope it's temporary and will be back to normal soon.

How great to see you at 'My Corner of the World' this week!! Thanks for linking.

On the spot

I've noticed all around the West Coast these little dairies/shops are dotted in some of the smaller towns. Can't call them a Four Sq...
