Queen of the Mississippi on the Ohio River

A guest blog today.

Look what passed my friend’s house yesterday!

The Queen of the Mississippi.

Deb sent me these photos she took as the riverboat traveled down the Ohio River.

Her home is on Neville Island.

Something you don’t see everyday, that’s for sure.  Thanks for sending the photos, Debbie.

Quad Cities Halloween House

Mary and I ate dinner along the Mississipi River at the Boat House in Davenport.  Char grilled catfish filets. Our hotel overlooks the river in Bettendorf. A huge riverboat transformed into a casino.We’re in Iowa to celebrate our first cousin’s daughter’s wedding tomorrow.  Driving along River Road we saw this home decked out for Halloween. The photo doesn’t capture it sufficiently. I couldn’t have answered what the Quad Cities were before today.Moline IL East Moline IL Rock Island IL and Davenport IA

 


Large carved pumpkins lit the stairs.
