Default The BELLE, memories

Good morning,

I thought it might be fun to start a thread for this years birthday girl by sharing our first meetings and special memories of the boat.

My first experience with the Belle was in 1976 when I was very new to the world. My parents took me on an afternoon excursion which I don't recall but do have pictures of.

There have been many memorable experiences with the Belle but the one that remains most vivid was at that first Tall Stacks in 1988. My family and I were touring the P.A. Denny in the early evening when that whistle blew from under the Suspension Bridge. The twinkling deck lights, the steam, and the hairs on my neck standing at attention from the sound of that whistle. From that moment on I was hooked.

Hope others will share their stories about their first encounters with us.
