Default Day 3

After playing 18 holes of golf, it was time to cool down so I missed both day trips. I rode and narrated the dinner cruise, which was a repeat of the previous day: a cooling breeze made sitting on the roof in front of the pilothouse watching the sunset and listening to the Dukes very comfortable. There was a fantastic sunset, with the sun being a huge orange ball behind the city skyline, and a pink horizon for quite a while followed. I was camera less.... although the temps are still in the 90s, I'll ride the 11:30 today but maybe not sit in the sun the whole time as I did in my younger days. Its hard to believe, but my first trip on the NATCHEZ was in 1980 and my first summer of work was 1984, so I've been around her all but 4 years of her 40 year existence....
