When the deckhands walked out wearing their life vests and gloves, we knew the Charleston was about to leave. The guy standing in the doorway is the engineer, and the guy in the black shirt on the left is Captain Jimmy.
Before the Charleston could get back to making money towing barges, it had to return the barge that generates steam to power the old steamboat whistles had to return to port.
It was a great open house, and the crew was extremely hospitable and great hosts. See you next year.
