Autumnal Goodbye to Lowertown Landing

Sunny skies over the Queen of the Mississippi riverboard; viewing it's paddlewheel from the back.

Autumn, and the Queen of the Mississippi, arrive at Lowertown Landing.

Autumn seemed to be calling us this morning,  coaxing us to put off sifting through our storage to prepare for a tag sale/farewell open house John and I are planning for next weekend.  So we donned warm coats, hats, running shoes and answered the summons of the sunshine, and the season, by taking a walk down the riverfront path along Shepherd Road.

Trees touched with the breath of autumn greeted us in modest hues of gold and red.

One of the treats of Lowertown life has been the surprises the riverfront can yield on a morning stroll.  Today did not disappoint.  The majesty of the Queen of the Mississippi riverboat, taking on a load of travelers, also awaited us at the end of Sibley Street.

Enjoy the images we captured, on one of our dwindling weekend mornings in this lovely place we’ve called home, Lowertown Landing.
