We're Going on a Cruise!!
You may be thinking: Isn't this the woman who went to the Renaissance Faire and the Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre and California? Yes!
Give me a chance and I'll travel all over! Hubby and I are leaving for a week on the Delta Queen steamboat, cruising out of Nashville on the Cumberland and Ohio Rivers, to Cincinnati. This will be our 4th cruise on the DQ, and our last. This is the last season for the old boat to be in service.
It has quite a history. It is a National Historical Monument, and also a floating US Post Office. It was put into service during WW2, and also has hosted several famous folks and presidents.
We love the slow pace, about 5 miles per hour), and the leisurely pace aboard. We also love the great food and entertainment, and the opportunity to meet new friends. We love having an on-board historian. The ports give opportunity to explore some famous and educational American historical sites. But most of all, we like to sit in a rocking chair or porch swing on deck, and just watch America go by.
We've planned and saved for this trip for over a year, and now it's almost here!! It's not the most frugal thing in the world, but it's worth it to us. See ya later!
