    I stood on the bow of the Southern Belle taking video. I ended up with almost 42 minutes of her from the park to where we said good bye. There is a lot of random chatter in it as I was more focused on the Queen. As soon as I can get it uploaded I will post the link for everyone to see, if they want.

    A huge thanks to Ed Frazier for making one of the best videos of the Delta Queen I have ever seen.I agree with Pat Carr an now on to New Orleans to make her river ready once again just one more hurdle the Senate vote an she will be on her way in 2016 an a thanks again to all those who worked so hard to make this all possible.They said she should be in New Orleans no later than April 2 thats fantastic.

    We missed you Pat!! But do know we were thinking of you. It was quite a thrill to see her slide out of Coolidge Park. As soon as we got the towboat wired up to her stern, she wanted to go! She wasn't stuck in the mud anything....I think she was chomping at the bit to leave. It all happened so fast, I don't think it sank in what we were really doing until I had jumped off the DQ, ran over to the Southern Belle, and then saw her come gliding up beside us. Then reality set in, and I realized we did it! She's on her way!

    Hope to see you again soon Pat!

    With the lock closure at Wilson Lock & Dam, I wouldn't expect the DQ into NOLA until around Good Friday or possibly even Easter. She's on "river time" now and "NCP" applies!

    Thank you, Ed, how wonderful to see her moving again even if not on her own. God willing, and with the help of the Senate, House of Representatives, the courageous new owners and her many supporters, we look forward to seeing her traveling the rivers under her own steam, paddle wheel churning and that glorious whistle proclaiming her return. LONG LIVE THE QUEEN!!

    Facebook at l 45 today with photos. Delta Queen stopped at Hales Bar Mile 430 Tenessee River then left for Nickajack Lock about noon.The Wilson Lock will not be open until March 28 as it is undergoing maintaince so the towboat operator I think the towboat is named Herron is going to stop an wait till the Wilson Lock opens up an I guess that is Saturday.Lots pf pictures an I saw a little speech by Cornell Martin so check it out everyone and MORE updates are coming soon.

    Thank you, I'm so happy to see this. I hope to see her once more in Louisville, and to hear her beautiful calliope play again.
