Default Closing on a happier note

Here are some pix of the boat as Debbie is playing the pre boarding concert for the dinner cruise. Again, the river stage was low, 2.7 feet, so much of the boat isn't visible due to the wharf.
While the temps ranged from 43 to 70 during the day and it wasn't as pleasant to be outdoors as usual, the hospitality on the NATCHEZ was as warm as ever. As of January 1, Captains Steve Nicoulin and Don Houghton will have served in that capacity for 20 years, the same amount of time that Captains Doc Hawley and Roddy Hammett served. One of the pilots/alternate master, Capt. Steven Nicoulin, wasn't born yet when I started working on the boat...Time marches on, but the NATCHEZ keeps rolling on the river, one of two excursion steamboats still plying the rivers. Don't miss her if you ever get to New Orleans!
