Even though there were a lot of people touring the house, no steamboaters were around this morning. Then they all appeared at once: John Fryant, Jim Reising, Kenny Howe, Travis Vasconcelos, Phillip Johnson, Fred Carmichael... after a great afternoon of steamboat talk, and of course Keith and I were monitoring the 2nd floor with an eagle eye too, we adjourned to the Kingfish Restaurant. In attendance there were: Phillip, JoAnn, Fred, Ted, Tom Courson from the BELLE, Keith, and Judy. Lagniappe was seeing steam emanating from the BELLE. Tom informed us she had a charter tonight from 7-9. So our after dinner 'dessert' was standing on the terrace and watching the BELLE chug by. Picture one shows Travis, Fred, and Kenny in a deep discussion on the 2nd floor of the mansion. Pics two and three are our 96 year young BELLE, with the new a/c units not horribly visible from the distance, as she heads upriver on her charter.
