Great jobs of 2006 – Ferrywoman


How’s this for a job to be doing on a blustery October Sunday with a full flood tide running?

I know there’s worse (ask any grunt in Iraq) but you have to admire what some people are prepared to do to earn a crust. Says something about the dignity of honest labour, doesn’t it?

FYI – the ferry crosses the River Blyth in Suffolk England, saving walkers about 1.5 miles by linking Southwold and Walberswick.
