Rollin' On The River

Sunset on the Mississippi

A group of diners on the Spirit of Dubuque

River Traffic

Port of Dubuque
Seven of us set sail on the might Spirit of Dubuque, a paddle wheel steamer that served dinner and no-host drinks. The dinner was a choice of prime rib or breast of chicken in a cream sauce; garlic mashed potatoes, frozen, chopped green bean casserole and rolls and butter. Pastry twists for dessert. I went vegetarian, but enjoyed the chick gravy on my mashed po. All of the seven agreed that dinner was much better than had been expected.
