Default Steamboaters from the Netherlands

We had an early morning steamboat museum tour for a group of 35 visitors from the Netherlands. Despite the forecast for NO rain, it POURED as the bus arrived at the gate! A delightful group, they dried out while I gave a brief talk about the history of the Howard family, mansion and shipyard and then divided them into groups for the docents to easier manage.

Later today, after the afternoon excursion on the BELLE of LOUISVILLE, the group will board the AMERICAN QUEEN at the Louisville waterfront for a cruise to Vicksburg.

We were honored to host this group and it was gratifying that many of them purchased numerous books and other items on river history in the gift shop. I hope we prepared them well for the sights and sounds of steamboating --- and that there's adequate water down on the Mississippi!
