Last Boat on the River

Last Boat on the River | Expeditions / Travel and holiday
by Quentin van Marle

IMAGINE THIS IF YOU WILL: you go to bed one night inside the home you know so well - and wake up the next morning to find that your house has, quite literally, been moved to a different street, or even to another town entirely. This cannot be so, you say; it’s impossible; a few too many last night, that must be it. But then you get dressed and walk out the front door - into totally unfamiliar surrounds.
These panic-stricken moments would have anyone seriously questioning their state of mind, or even believing they and their property had been abducted by aliens while sound asleep. Yet such an event has occurred many times, and in the only place it could do.
Beside the Mississippi River.
