The Ferry Life – It’s a Wonderful Life Indeed!
As anyone who has ever seen Christmas classic with Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey knows, that our life journey while intertwined with trials and tribulations is indeed something special and to be treasured.
As anyone who has lived her in “The Ferry” knows that we are fortunate to live in Paradise (hurricanes excepted). And there is always something to do here if you know where to look.

You may recognize the Evans’ from organizing Cartacula [the Halloween Golf Cart Parade held each year – unfortunately canceled in 2018 due to Hurricane Florence] or their decade-long Christmas Light display at their home on Sail Way where Santa & Mrs Clause have been known to visit every night for the couple weeks leading up to Christmas Eve. You can see Santa’s schedule on their Facebook page.
According to Carol, Ray has always had a vision of a town Christmas Tree for Sneads Ferry, and it is finally coming true! They love Christmas, and the idea of their little shrimping village finally having a tree. The tree will be made out of shrimp nets, courtesy of Mr. David Revell of Snead’s Ferry.
