Life On the Mississippi: Tom Sawyer in Autumn

Well, not Tom Sawyer in person. The Tom Sawyer, the river excursion boat. My post last Saturday had a picture of what is, in effect, the dock for this and two similar vessels. It's fun to go for a ride during the day when you can see the variety along the river banks. Not so hot at night because you can see very little in the dark after the boat leaves downtown.

It this photo, the Tom Sawyer is about to pass under Eads Bridge as it goes by the end of the park that contains the Arch.

Aaaaaah!!! This is the pretty one I had in mind the other day. Is that the one you refer to with your sushi vending machine reference? Those old boats are beautiful.

Awesome photo. It reminds me of the faux-steam boat we had in Monroe, Louisiana where I went to school. It cruises down the Ouchita River every weekend for locals and tourists alike.
