Thursday, Stillwater Boat Ride

stillwater bridge
My mom is in town this weekend. Thursday we went out to the little town of Stillwater to see the river town and also take a lunch boat ride on the St. Croix River. There were a LOT of old people on this boat. Honestly I didn't think there would be enough people to ride on a Thursday afternoon, but to my surprise there were a lot. I think a local nursing home was taking a field trip :-P

We made it to Stillwater just in time to buy our ticket and board the boat at 11:30.

As we embarked on our river journey we saw the town of Stillwater and noticed the water was very high.

We enjoyed the pretty scenery.
