Passing the Belle of Cincinnati

Good morning,

These are a few images for one of our boat rides on the Ohio River aboard the River Queen.  We were headed down river when we saw the Belle of Cincinnati coming in our direction.
She is one of the lunch and dinner cruise riverboats owned by BB Riverboats that are a must-do when you are in Cincinnati.  We were aboard the sister ship River Queen when I took these images.
Closer...
...closer...
...and soon we were passing.
People on all the decks of our boat...
...were watching and exchanging waves with people on the Belle of Cincinnati.
 What a great day on the Ohio River!

Enjoy,
Lois

How fun. This is something I would enjoy doing. They have a Cruise like this on the Columbia River in Washington/Oregon but I've never gone on it. Maybe someday.

Nice! That's not something you'd see in our area so I'm glad to see your photos! What a great experience! I'd like be able to take a ride someday :-)

You seem to take full advantage of the river, Lois. I would certainly take a cruise on one of these vessels.

It looks like it was a beautiful day for a cruise! I can't believe I lived in Cinci for several years and never took the cruise! Shame on me!
