      ... into her. She got us all set up with our ferry tickets, there and back, explained what we would be doing, and walked us to the waiting area for the boat. We didn't have to wait long, maybe 10 minutes, and then boarded the, deceivingly large, ferry. The trip lasted about 30 minutes, but that wasn't enough to prepare us for what was to come.
