Cruise Down The Maumee River

Today we boarded what is called "The Sandpiper."  It is a local boat that takes cruises up and down the Maumee River.  It was Navy Week in our area and many boats were in town tied up along the river for part of their visiting tour.

If you look real close, you will see a small boat in front of this ship.  The boat had several mounted guns.  Should the Navy boat come under attack, this boat would serve as protection.  It was pretty cool to see!
It was in the 90's so our ride was very warm but none the less....interesting!
