The Caribbean Queen, a freight boat, loading up at the municipal pier in San Pedro, Blake House in the background, 1980's & early 1990's
Ooooh....I remember anxiously waiting for my new bicycle to come from the city on that boat. We used to fish for morays right there. This was back when Manellys had a really nice aquarium. I showed them the eel and they wanted it for their aquarium. They gave me a free ice cream cone for the eel!
Kriss Holtz: Everything arrived on the "QUEEN." My golf carts arrived on the Caribbean Queen...
I can still smell the fresh air, smell of diesel and the pizza coming from Barrier Reef Hotel in the back...
Francis Paul Ripp:
John hauled all the building supplies for Mariah Reef Resort the first year he got the Queen 1980.
