A ferry in a ferry

The other day I came across the old ferry M/F Bjorøy, moored at her old quay at Alvøen, in the outskirts of Bergen. She used to connect the small island of Bjorøy with Alvøen, but this connection has been replaced by a sub-sea tunnel long ago. As I was standing there, a much more modern ferry passed, M/F Prinsesse Ragnhild, bound for Denmark.

Oh, I love your perspective on this... this is awesome!!
I love taking the ferry. We have the ferry from Nelson,BC to the mainland that has to be taken because the highway ends... it's a great sail through the mountains on Kootenay Lake for 45 mins.

Just like Rocky Mountain Girl, I like the ferry rides, we have ferries on river, lake and sea, some of them quite old and antiquated.
The BC coast is similar to Norway with many inlets and Islands all reqiring ferries.
I will post some pics of our ferries
