There is spring and ducks in the air

Posted by

On Monday there was a ferry in trouble when the big iceboards disrupted its passage. A small chain-driven ferry cannot break the ice and had to wait until the iceboards passed.

Lots of ducks. What is that red barge/ferry thing on which the people are standing?

19 Mar 2019 10:54am

@beach: It is Turku river ferry, that is, "Fori". It transports people across the river from morning to night. The closest bridge is almost a kilometer away, which is why it is helpful for those who are moving here. The name FÖRI comes from the Swedish word "färjan".

The mallards are starting to congregate in the hopes that the ice will soon disappear. Great find and capture! The orange an blue barge adds a nice punch of color.

@Steven: I told you the purpose of "barge" above. ducks have been there all winter. They are the townspeople's pets and people bring them food

Interesting about the ferry and the ice. Winder still has not let go.

@B. Thomas: Ice cubes were moving on Monday. Now there is nothing to disturb the movement of the ferry.

Lots of open water for the ducks. Hopefully, the ice passed quickly so the ferry could proceed.

19 Mar 2019 11:01pm

@Steve Rice: The ice passed quite fast, and the new ones were not close. Everything was ok again.
