Bigfoot and the Breezy Belle, a good last hoorah to summer


As summer nears its end and the nights become a bit cold to enjoy a boat ride out on the lake, I had the privilege of one last venture, hopping aboard the Breezy Belle for a spin around Pelican Lake last Wednesday.

It was my first trip on the paddle-wheel excursion boat that once formerly sailed the Mississippi River and there was never a dull moment with the night filled with laughter and a few surprises along the way.
