Steamboat on the Mississippi

New Orleans, Part 5

Beautiful sunny November afternoon in New Orleans. Let's take a steamboat ride on the Mississippi River.

Here we are on the Steamboat Natchez.
The Natchez is operated by the New Orleans Steamboat Company.
I didn't take a photo of the boat before boarding.

We got up close and personal with several big boats on the river.

The Domino Sugar company.
We saw them unloading raw sugar from barges on the river.

Another tour company along the river.

Great color.
Love the red, white and blue.
Just look at that sky.

We passed several barges traveling up and down the Mississippi.

The Steamboat Natchez, daytime jazz cruise is a great way to spend the afternoon in New Orleans.
I'm not sure how much fun it would be in the summer with temperatures in the 90's.
The music was entertaining with dancing for those so inclined.
There is a restaurant and a bar on board.
Did I mention the refreshing cocktail called the "Hunker Down"?
