Mississippi River Boat Trip

By

Saturday we were invited to go boating on the Mississippi River.  A friend has a large wooden-hulled boat and wanted to take a group of us out for the day.  The marina he's docked at is north of St Charles at Woodland Harbor.  It was pretty easy to find - about a forty minute drive from the city.

What a terrific day.  The weather was beautiful and the scenery was fantastic.  We've driven the Great River Road on numeerous occasions and I often wondered what it would be like to be out in the river looking towards shore.  What great views as we passed Grafton and Our Lady of the Rivers at Portage des Sioux.

After about three hours, we rode the jet skis.  I had never ridden one before, so I rode with a friend.  We flipped over just minutes after starting the ride.  We both leaned to far in the same direction, and the ski just flipped us both into the water.  We had life vests on, but I still went under the water.  We got back on the ski easily and I made a mental note to learn to close my mouth the next time we capsized; river water doesn't taste too good.  If we were to flip over, I was glad we did it early on, as I no longer had the fear of the water and we flew across the water.  Those jetskis can move fast...

We docked after 5:00 pm.   It was a day I will remember for a long time, and I look forward to the next time...
