Right now it is dawn here at the wharf, and I sit overlooking the Delta Queen in all of her glory. In the early morning stillness it's as if the sky is holding its breath, awed to be a vaulted viewer from above on this special day. The Queen rests comfortably, fully fueled and watered, bow nestled against the wharf, stern out some 50 feet off of the dock, safely in deep water. Down below in her holds, the intrepid crew is stirring, no doubt filled with anticipation of the day ahead. From the galley the tempting aroma of biscits and hot coffee signal the chef has already been busy. Another staemboatin' day! And indeed, today is the day! I have always believed that this day would come, and I never thought that steamboating would pass, but confess to worrying about its future and which way it would go. As I look at this wonderful old vessel I realized that she knew all along of what was to come, and did not worry; she has simply waited for us to rouse her from her slumber. So today we sail again, and though you may not be physically be aboard when the whislte blows, We hope it will echo in your heart, and return to you the love that brought her back, once again, saved by love, the Steamer Delta Queen!
