Mark Roberts (left) pilots the Blue Heron during a cruise this week. On those cruises, residents get a chance to see the beauty of the river and its inhabitants, such as the two mature bald eagles in the photo above. September cruises are on Thursdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Reservations for the Blue Heron cruises can be made by calling the Rock Creek Marina and Campground at (563) 259-1876.
