Florida Tesla Enthusiasts enjoy a relaxing lunch & cruise along the St. Johns River (Public)

On June 5, 2021, 60 club members and their guests gathered for a lunch and river cruise onboard The Barbara-Lee. It's the only authentic sternwheeler sailing the St. Johns River. Built in 1986, she measures 105 feet from stem to stern. It features ornate wrought iron railings and massive wooden paddle wheels. The five-story river ship accommodates up to 194 guests. The river cruise was three hours long and a 25 miles round trip on the beautiful St. John's River.  All throughout, we enjoyed live entertainment.

Our group occupied the entire air-conditioned main deck, where we were served a delicious sit-down lunch.  Everyone was free to explore the various decks of The Barbara-Lee.

With the advent of proven highly effective vaccinations, this was our first event in which we resumed indoor activities with reduced social distancing and minimal face mask use.  The event was intended for members and their guests with full vaccinations.

Many thanks go to Beverly and Tom Siceloff for organizing this relaxing and enjoyable event. 

Below are some photos:
