Pearl Vision on the Mississippi River
As viewed from Muscatine, Iowa--"Pearl on the Mississippi," and formerly known as the Pearl Button Capital of the World.
Having Pearl Vision is looking out from the "Pearl of the Mississippi River"--Muscatine, Iowa onto the grand old river itself....like looking through the string hole of a pearl.
Sun Doth Shine
Looking toward the lock and dam and Illinois. Something about this "Old Man River"...he sort of captures you. Intending to stay one year in this city...well, we're going on twenty-nine years...unbelievable...that's pearl vision at its finest...seeing good things to come...
Our favorite tugboat---"Joshua"...waits in harbor for the sun to set...does he know something we don't?
Pirate's Booty on the Rocks
The Black Pearl with its curse may be right around the corner....maybe it's a trap...
Aye...tis a trap, this one for sure...better beware...Just what would happen if we tried to get that pearl necklace? Dare we try?
Putting Her Foot Down
I'll not be afraid...this is my river...my home...no black bearded pirate or Johnny Depp pirate will keep me from enjoying myself here--curse or no curse! I'll get out my telescope and take a pearl vision view of things...
Testing the Waters
Well, no pirates in sight...no Black Pearl Ship either...maybe I'll go for a swim...if, that is, the water is warm...
Sun Doth Set
Now...the end of a perfect pearl vision day...nice swim, no pirates, new confidence...new me. The pirate booty's still on the dock...better leave it there...I've avoided the trap all day...no sense falling for their trick now...
