"While the river of life glides along smoothly, it remains the same river; only the landscape on either bank seems to change."
- Max Müller
My dad's boss rented the River Queen for a dinner cruise down the Choptank River in appreciation of his employees and I got to devour the experience with them! Another boat left the Suicide Bridge Restaurant marina just before ours did, as shown in the first picture. Both boats are reproductions of authentic 80-foot turn-of-the-century paddle wheelers. Aren't the wheels amazing? I took a quick wheel video if you'd like to see them in action.
We were worried that a storm might cut the trip short, but the sun broke through the clouds just in time to give us a stunning sunset. Its bold light reflected through my dad's sunglasses in his silhouette shot. But he doesn't need real rose-colored glasses to make the memory more beautiful - the cruise couldn't have been better!
