    Over the years the condition of the ferries and the ramps have varied greatly.
    Now it's better than ever. There is even 2 ferries for bikes. One small and one larger one. Don't know why, but the ferry-man has a brand new Ducati in his shed and my guess will be he needs money to pay for it. 150 bath pr bike is not too bad.
    The north side is all concrete ramps, the south side is still dirt. But it has been levelled out.
    Next time there I'll get the ferry-man ph number and post here.

    The old restaurant on the south side. Nice road.

    The "new" restaurant. They will call the Ferry-man. Expect about 30 minutes waiting.
