The Pictures of the Day ..... were sent to us by Capt'n Rob Boteler


Spending time in Berlin out walking. River Spree lock, apartments and my favorite no anchor sign. Very different than our river.

Auf wiedersehen





Translation From Wikipedia

Auf wiedersehen

Literally: “until our reunion”, “until we see each other again”. Probably a calque of French au revoir. Compare further Italian arrivederci, Dutch tot ziens, English until we meet again and see you, and similar forms in many languages of the world.


The River Spree from Wikipedia:

The Spree is a river that flows through the Saxony, Brandenburg and Berlin states of Germany, and in the Ústí nad Labem region of the Czech Republic. Approximately 400 kilometres (250 mi) in length, it is a left bank tributary of the River Havel, which itself flows into the Elbe and then the North Sea. It is the river on which the original centre of Berlin was built....click here

Mississippi River At Quincy, Illinois

Classic Boat Show Running Over The Weekend........


Over the weekend, the Quincy Boat Club is hosting the Quincy Classic Boat and Outboard Show, which began on Friday and will run through Sunday.


According to Todd Young, one of the show's organizers, the Quincy Boat Club has been hosting the classic boat show for 18 years, and they have had up to 75 boats in attendance.  He notes that this year, there will likely be fewer boats, as the Mississippi River is above flood stage.


Usually, there would be several boats attending the annual show coming up from Hannibal, but with the Mississippi River running high, and flood gates installed in Hannibal, the river run was called off for this year........
