Serendipity Princess

 Paddle wheeler on Georgian Bay (Lake Huron)

The day I made this photo, Serendipity Princess was docked in Midland and ...

 The paddle wheel up out of the water

judging by the mop hanging over the railing someone must have been cleaning it so it would be ship-shape for it's next tour - a 90-minute narrated cruise around historical Penetanguishene.  Note there are three decks, which includes a patio on the upper level.

Closer look at the paddle wheel

Apparently there's room on this paddle wheeler for 265 passengers!

A real beauty, 265 passengers seems an awful lot though!

Well, that's kind of cool.

Revrunner said...

BUT is there room enough for this name--Penetanguishene? Wow! :-)

Linda said...

It is lovely! Great captures! And I saw your raccoon photo and it made me think of a neighbour of mine who saw a raccoon in her backyard! While this doesn't sound unusual, it is much more unusual here in Montreal! :)

Yikes! I do not think I would want to venture out on the river with 264 other people!! Pretty boat though!

That is a beautiful ship. Fun to get a good look at the wheel out of the water.

Shammickite said...

Lovely. I'd suggest going for a jaunt on the lake on this paddle wheeler, but it's a bit cold today and I don't have my long johns on yet!!!!!

Lois Evensen said...

I'm sure it is a great tour! We have similar paddle wheelers here in Cincinnati that provide lunch and dinner cruises on the Ohio River. When we need a water fix we go take a river cruise. :)

RedPat said...

I didn't know there was a paddleboat there! Very nice.

Janet said...

Oh, I'd love to take a sightseeing cruise on that boat, but maybe not with that many passengers!

Sylvia K said...

Terrific captures for the day as always!! I do love the paddle wheeler!! Your pics brought back fun memories of the one that I took up the Mississippi years ago when I lived in New Orleans!! What fun!! Hope your new week is off to a great start!! Enjoy!!

Funny name for a great boat!

Christine said...

She's a lovely boat and that sounds like a nice tour!

Amy at love made my home said...

Interesting to see the paddle not paddling! xx

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

The colours are amazing!

Penelope Puddlisms said...

That does sound like lots of passengers! I can see things going a bit tipsy should all 265 people stand on just one side of the boat. :)

I would love to take a cruise on one of these. They are so elegant looking.

Worth a Thousand Words

Kathy said...

I'm thinking that would be a fun trip any time of the year!

Rose said...

I would never have guessed it holds 265 passengers...but wish I could rent it for about a month and just 'paddle' around all over with it.

Felicia said...

a beautiful paddle wheeler.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Just beautiful Christine. What a wonderful relaxing time this would be to sail away on this beauty. Thanks for sharing your great photos.
Have a nice week ahead. cm

Stephanie said...

Hard to believe it can accommodate that many people. Beautiful boat!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

She sure is pretty, especially from the shore. I don't see lifeboats for 265!

mick said...

Great photos of a very interesting boat. It would be fun to take a trip on her.
