Rolling on the river


This evening my colleague and I did the sunset dinner cruise, with a live jazz band, on a paddle boat. I noticed that the traditional paddles were not steam powered, and the chimneys were decorative. The inside area of the boat was air-conditioned which also made it a bit too cold for my liking. We went about five miles downstream, then turned around and cruised back up the river towards New Orleans which was lit up by this glorious sunset. Once the sun had set a light breeze came down the river, which was a welcome relief. The band played on the top deck for the entire cruise and people danced, some with babies in their arms. A hen party consisting of five women who all looked too young to be getting married (in my judgement) were particularly lively.
