Moro Bay Ferry
Hubby agreed to take me out sketching today. He let me sketch in peace for about an hour before the heat and the skeeters got to him. I wasn't quite through with all the shading, so I had to take photos and finish up the details and color at home. But hey, an hour is a *huge* sacrifice for him considering the five minutes I have been getting.
This ferry was part of Arkansas Highway 63 until October 27, 1992 when a bridge was built across the Ouachita River. After 164 years of providing an easy and wonderful way to cross the river, the Moro Bay Ferry had become obsolete. It now sits on the bank of the river as a state park attraction.
