There is a car ferry only a couple of miles from our home that will take you across the bay to Dolphin Island where you will be able to explore Ft. Gains. There are exhibits which include the huge anchor from the USS Hartford, Admiral David Farragut's flagship on which he gave his world famous command, 'Damn the torpedoes – full speed ahead!'
