It was a dark and gloomy day as the MQ paddled the
final miles down to Davenport. But just as she finished
rounding to at Oneida St., the sun broke through the
clouds and glistened brilliantly on her bow- a
beautiful sight to start this steamboating day. She was
all fast at 6:28AM, a bit later than usual, but still I
was the only observer of the water ballet. I think
watching a rounding to, as the boat glides silently
through the water in the early morning is such a neat
experience. I hope that those of you faithful riders
will someday get to see the boats from shore too. We
are lucky here on the UMR to have the boats visit so
often. I've got to get the cookies and newspapers
packed and delivered now. The mate waited till about
100 yards from shore before yelling "Where are the
cookies?" ....................
