Dolly Steamboat Cruise; Canyon Lake, April 23, 2015 Topo Map

Senior Saints Alive went on a Dolly Steamboat cruise with our friends from Christ the Victor. We all met for lunch at Victory Lutheran Church, then pastor Bruce Lerum drove us to Canyon Lake in the church bus.

The day was mostly sunny and pleasantly warm as we all got on the Dolly Steamboat. Our cruise took us a few miles upstream, with lively narration and plenty of picture opportunities. Bighorn sheep and a bald eagle tending its chick greeted us from high above the water. Jacque found a seat by a picture window while I went walking around trying to get the best camera angle. It was a time of fun and fellowship for all!
