A Trip to the Mississippi River

These “landlubbers” recently took a Sunday jaunt to the Quad Cities to attend a graduation party. We had packed a sack lunch to enjoy by the Mississippi River since it’s something we don’t see often.

It was fun to see the barges, the trains, the sailboats, and even the jet skies, but our highlight was seeing the birds, especially the pelicans.

We watched them swim, dive, take off and land. What a treat it was!
