Last weekend Kyle and Kyle told Kylie and I that they had a special date planned for us. We were so anxious to know what we were going to do!
We climbed in the Pilot and headed to downtown Louisville where we met the Belle of Louisville on the river.
The Ohio river runs right downtown. It separates Indiana from Kentucky.
They boys had booked us tickets on a lunch cruise. Unfortunately, will call messed up and was trying to give us the "sightseeing only" tickets. Luckily, they had extra food available and they were able to switch our tickets to include lunch.
The cruise was fun. It was 2 hours long and cruised up the river, turned around and cruised back. Kentucky really is so beautiful and it was gorgeous looking at all the scenery. The food was good. However, I think this was the first time I really realized how different Kentucky is. Their gourmet is different. We had a buffet of fried chicken, mac n cheese, mashed potatoes, rolls, ham, roast beef, potato salad, pie, cole slaw, pasta salad, and green beans. Dinner cruises I have previously been on were serving steak or fish. I suppose to the Kentucky native that fried chicken is better than steak! Anyway, we all had a blast and filled our bellies. We also got to walk down to the steam room and see it operate. The Belle is still on of the only operating steam boats in America!
Thanks to our boys for such a fun day!
|We decided the next time we all wait in a line to board a boat better be for the company cruise in December!|
