Cruising Down The River

UPPER MISSISSIPPI RIVER

 

-----Every cruise has its special moments. It is not always the most dramatic events, but the individual moments that sum up the total experience. We have grouped some of these to share with you and perhaps give a preview (or review) for those who might contemplate a cruise on the Upper Mississippi.

MISSISSIPPI MOMENTS

DINING

Almost every day, on our cruise down the Upper Mississippi, we found an interesting place to eat. Here are a few.

This is the Bellevue Benefit Fish Fry

Here are some views outside and inside at Sneaky Pete's in Le Clair. Don't wear a tie.

And this is Le Halcyon, with the finest sushi on the Mississippi

The Pier, Quincy, IL--- El, Joane, and Duane

RELIGION

Halcyon cruising by Nauvoo, with the Mormon temple in the background.

Pretty church along the river.

RELAXING

-----We had many quiet moments to kick back, visit, and relax. The C-Dog Gathering in Wisconsin was a special time. But, every day - on shore, the beach, the dock, and the boat - always time to kick back and enjoy - each other, the day, the experience - life!

El, working hard

-GAMING

---It's there, if you want it. But, for us Nevadans, we know what builds those fancy casino boats, and it ain't our winnings. Many of the towns had river boat casinos - seems kinda silly to us that here you have to float a casino. You either have gambling or you don't, seems to us, whether it's floating or ashore.
