In crossing another travel adventure off their bucket list, two retirees take a fascinating river cruise and find the heart and soul of the American South.

Born travelers Al and Sunny Lockwood seized their dreams of exploring America's natural wonders. From hiking Sierra Nevada mountain trails to photographing wildflowers in Death Valley, they've documented their fascinating journeys to critical acclaim.

Join Al and Sunny on the decks of an antebellum paddle-wheel riverboat as they experience the culinary delights, rich architecture, breathtaking vistas, and famous hospitality of southern culture.

You'll visit lavish plantation mansions, honor the fallen at Civil War memorials, and be swept away by the magical beat of authentic New Orleans jazz. Before the journey ends, you'll witness how the couple's first impressions are challenged, changing their hearts forever.

-Fascinating histories of riverside cities
-Little-known facts about famous landmarks
-Personal reflections and insights from their daily experiences

From North Carolina's Outer Banks to New Orleans' Burbon Street and Nashville's Grand Ole Opry, they love to wander and wonder and enjoy. And everywhere they go, they capture unforgettable moments -- Al with his camera and Sunny with her reporter's notebook -- to share with their readers. Their work has been published in magazines and newspapers.
