We had just arrived at Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, New York, when I heard it — a ship’s whistle. I took a couple pictures at Bestor Plaza, ignoring the whistle.
The whistle was persistent, though, and LOUD. The whistle sounded several times, calling me. I stopped resisting the urge to see the boat with the loud whistle. We hopped in the car and drove the short distance to Chautauqua Lake.
The Chautauqua Belle is a replica of a steam-powered stern wheeler that provides tours of Chautauqua Lake. I have never ridden this boat. I would love to go on a ride some day! If you would like to read more about the Chautauqua Belle, you may do so by clicking here.
