Topic: Field Trip
We recently had a new experience - cruising on a river boat. We took a sternwheel steamboat down four rivers - Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland. Then we followed up with a few days with family.
Along the way we were in St. Louis, Missouri - Alton, Illinois - Grafton, Illinois - Cape Girardeau, Illinois - Dover, Missouri - Paducha, Kentucky - Clarksville, Tennessee - Nashville, Tennessee - Lynchburg, Tennessee.
The paddlewheeler was fun and not at all like the cruise ships we are used to. VERY tiny towns we stopped in along the rivers.
Here are some of the best views...

With so many days of beautiful weather it was hard to decide what photos would best represent the whole of the trip. I chose these 12 and will turn them into a calendar with the next 'free' offer I get from Shutterfly.
