Lunching on the Riverboat Queen

I had the pleasure of being able to ride the Edmonton Queen Riverboat for a work function last Friday. It could not have been a better way to spend a lunch hour! The sun was shining. The view was stunning! Lunch was great too. It was a traditional BBQ featuring the most delicious Red (skin-on) Potato Salad.
The trees look alive.

 Downtown skyline and the Edmonton Shaw Conference Centre. I'd love to come back for a Dinner Cruise one evening and see it lit-up.

Hey! Segway tours - and the new Green Cafe and the River Valley Adventure Co. 

 We were pretty jealous of these guys. It looked so refreshing.
 Walterdale Bridge and EPCOR Rossdale Power Plant. Big Plans are in the works here.

The tour showed views of Area 4 of the River Valley Alliance's Plan of Action. "The bustle of downtown urban life meets the quiet of the river valley." I experienced it firsthand! Given the choice I would have stayed on the Queen for the rest of the afternoon, but I did go back to work feeling rejuvenated.
