On the river

Today was a day of contrasts - a collection of visuals that just do not seem to fit one day - Kate skiing at home and 5 degrees when I fed the birds.  Our neighbor Dick chauffeuring us to the Twin City airport, a landing in St Louis, then landing in New Orleans - taking a taxi to the Riverfront not far from the French Quarter and getting on the Queen of the Mississippi.

This gorgeous boat brought paddlewheels back to the river after a gap where the river was absent the big boats that could cruise long distances.  Nice to be here and to see the riverfront on a warm muggy evening.

 Kate is adding a new dimension to the river story this year.  Riding a pig on a paddlewheel on the Mississippi.
 Ships passing in the dark.
