Augusta Regatta

Augusta, Ky., had its annual regatta this past weekend. When I was down that way Thursday and saw several sternwheelers tied to the bank near the ferry landing, I figured something like that was about to happen.

This article in the Maysville newspaper includes an interview with the owners of the Dresden Belle. By coincidence, I was aboard the ferry and watched the boat come down the river and approach the dock.

Also at Augusta was the Don Robt.

I had seen it the Sunday before coming down the Ohio past Huntington. I thought I had a photo of it going under a bridge. If I did, it has vanished into the lumeniferous ether. Or I filed it in the wrong folder in my computer. Probably the second.
