Sternwheeler at Salem

School students, as well as mothers with their babies in strollers, watched a sternwheeler as it passed by Riverfront Park in Salem, Ore. today.

The sternwheeler offers various cruises, including a luncheon one, and the captain of the boat happily obliged the kids who waved from shore and encouraged him to toot his whistle.

Many people in the park enjoyed the warm spring day (cooler temperatures and rain are forecast to return for tomorrow), and even some of the kids even played an impromptu baseball game on the grass.

A few of the trees are in full bloom yet, the bald eagles have returned to soar over the river, and it definitely felt like spring.
