Palm Coast, FL—May 10, 2014 –The Music City Queen riverboat was photographed Thursday as it headed north on the Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Coast; destination unknown. The stern-wheeler has been operating on the Cumberland River out of Nashville, Tenn. I captured this shot from my condominium in Tidelands.
Boat watching from this venue is really enjoyable. Several private vessels sporting both U.S. and Canadian flags are seen headed south in the fall towards south Florida, Bahamas or Caribbean for the winter and returning north in the spring. Last fall I took this picture of Greta van Susteren’s 80-foot Trumpy yacht, "S.S. Sophie” motoring south. For more informatin about the Sophie, read Greta van Susteren's Trumpy in Power and Motor Yacht
Other highlights are the occasional commercial barge traffic, new Sea Ray boats on test runs, the Christmas Boat Parade each December and the Syracuse University men’s and women’s rowing teams practicing on the ICW each year in early January.
