Bo's did not open until 10 so we ran over to Akers car ferry first and then back tracked to Bo's. The ferry had a toll of $4 and I was the only one that put my car on.

... a 1986 Toyota 4 wheel drive station wagon, we have named Beulah. So far so good! Beulah has needed only one repair. She had a hole in her tailpipe. Fortunately Jim is very handy with cars and was able to fix the muffler that came loose.
