I’m so tired I can barely see straight. The boat was open for tours today and in six hours we had around 250 visitors. Thankfully there’s now several of us to divide these up, so that helped, but my throat is tired, my feet are throbbing, and my back aches. But it is so exciting to see so many people so fascinated with the old Delta Queen. It was fun giving the tours and watching new people discover how beautiful she is and what a fascinating story she has to tell.

If these tours are any indication, I think the hotel and restaurant have a great future ahead.
