STEAMBOAT - SECOND LIFE
The Girltown Steamboat, like our
Trolley, offers tours around, and thru, Girltown, but it uses the
waterways instead. It stops to allow boarding and un-loading of passengers
at two locations. One is at the front of our home, in the center of our
island, and the other is at the Nude Beach. It is a simple design, based
on the classic old film called "The African Queen," starring Humphrey
Bogart,"Bogey," and actress, (later his wife), Lauren Bacall, ("Babe.") It
is steam powered, and, if you look closely, you will see its spinning
propeller at the rear. :) Nice touch, huh?
Be wary when riding the Girltown Steamboat. She may have a look of innocence,
but her course, on the south side of our island, is anything but innocent.
You may want to wear a life vest as "rough seas" are ahead thru VERY turbulent
waters at some points! Can you imagine spaghetti, sloshing back and
forth, left their by previous passengers, who have heaved? I've seen
it, it's a nasty sight. Yuch.
The boat seats four, two in front, and two cuddling in back. The last two
to board get the "cuddle seats."
