There's so much to see as we cruise along that I find myself wishing all of our friends could be here with us; since that's not possible I hope our photos will make you feel like you're able to experience at least a little bit of what it's like.
We overslept today because I forgot to set my alarm, so instead of taking off at 7:15 we woke up at 7:15 and didn't get going until 7:45. Starting out it was rainy, but not quite as cold this morning.
There was lots to see along the river in the Quad Cities area.
Here we are cruising into the lock and you can see the closed swing bridge. We were told the bridge would be opened for us.
A duck blind with decoys. I keep seeing these along the way and they make me nervous...I don't want us to get between a hunter and his ducks!
Evening in Paradise--all three of us on computers. After dinner Joe sets up his cell phone with a "hot spot" and we all get on the internet.
