“Look at all these different kinds of apples!” exclaims a guest from aboard National Geographic Quest. We are at Draper Girls Family Farm, where apples and pears fill our senses. Glancing around, I am amused and intrigued by the names bestowed upon this autumn harvest: Tokyo Rose, Pink Pearl, Winter Banana, Spice, Ambrosia, Newton Pippin, Winesap, and Black Twig… to name a few! Later we mosey along the Mosier Tunnels trail, basking in the fall colors and mild breezes. On the other side of Hood River, our shipmates are regaled with tales of automotive and aeronautical adventure at the Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum. Reunited at last, our final lock passage is commemorated with a visit from King Neptune himself, and his entourage.
