Also a notable stat this week: I've passed 5000 miles on this trip! (see the "stats" column to the right for more info)
Quick update: The ferry never got fixed, so I waited around until about 1 pm, and the nice skipper of the ferry talked some local fisherman into giving me a ride across the 4 mile channel. Otherwise, it would have added 50 miles to my trip, and I wouldn't have had nearly as nice a ride! I gave the guys $20 and rode through the sand and stilted houses right on the gulf coast, just as planned.
