Captain Charlie



Captain Charlie piloted the cruise ship, The Grand Duchess, on the St. Croix River where we attended a wedding and reception on July 1st. Born in Iowa he found his way to Minnesota and Wisconsin with the rivers, lakes and streams. He wouldn't live anywhere else now while enjoying his own boat docked in Prescott, WI, when he's not taking passengers up and down the river.

  4. For a man who loves the water, Wisconsin and Minnesota are a definite improvement over Iowa.

    Some people might say that the qualification that begins the sentence above was unnecessary, but I don't want to insult anyone. After all, I'm from Missouri.

  11. That sounds like an interesting life choice! I know I prefer land and walking on the earth instead of floating on it.
