Thanks to Captain Banjo Bob on the Belle of Cincinnati and our travel guide Annette with Turner Coaches Air, Land, Sea, Rail in Terre Haute, Indiana, my mom and I had an enjoyable day trip to Newport, Ky., in June. This and the previous eight posts document our BB Riverboats cruise on the Ohio River and our afternoon at Newport on the Levee.

Love these photos Sheila… impressive…
Thanks so, so much, Bulldog! I was amazed at how much we could see and learn in just a day!
This is a really cool photo. I love the banjo and used to own one; never did learn how to play it but I still enjoyed playing with it..
He wasn’t the real captain but he was a really good banjo player; was very knowledgeable about the boat, river and history of the area as well.
I missed the paddlewheel.. Another excellent photo. I have ridden on the paddlewheeler at St. Louis a number of times dating back to the 50s…
Thanks, Rob. The riverboat excursion at Indiana Beach doesn’t count, so this was my first trip on a real one down a real river.
