STORY CHALLENGE: LETTER “P”
A paddle wheel is a wheel with boards around it for propelling a steamboat.
Living in a city with Three Rivers, Allegheny, Monongahela and The Ohio, you are bound to see many types of boats cruising on our rivers.
The Gateway Clipper Fleet with its five ships have been part of my life here in Pittsburgh since I was a kid taking my first boat ride on the Good Ship Lollipop.
The Princess is the only paddle wheel boat in the Gateway Clipper Fleet. It has the floor to ceiling windows that allows her passengers to have a superb view of Pittsburgh’s beautiful skyline.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of boarding another paddle wheel boat, The Island Belle. Boarding in Parkersburg, WV, we cruised on the Ohio River over to The Blennerhassett Island to view the mansion by candlelight and participate in many other activities.
Cruising on a paddle wheel boat is a wonderful experience. The ride is smooth and the view from their open upper decks are spectacular.
