Bac du Sauvage

Standard

According to Wikipedia:  

The Bac du Sauvage or Sauvage Ferryis a cable ferry across a branch of the Rhône in the Camargue region of southern France. The crossing is 230 metres (750 ft) long[1] and carries a road across the Petit Rhône about 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi) from Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer and a similar distance upriver from the Mediterranean Sea.[2] The ferry crossing is located on the territory of the commune of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.[3]

 

We discovered the ferry when we were on our boat ride, since this was the turn-around spot for the boat.  We decided we’d have to find this crossing on our way home.


It carries only 8 cars and the crossing takes 40 seconds.  I barely got out of the car to take a video and we were across!

Done and done!!  This one’s for you, Lee Shoemaker!
