The Illinois River at sunset:
That's my friend's houseboat, which we drove up the river until the engine blew up, luckily right in front of the ritzified downtown Peoria waterfront. Otherwise we might have been run down by any number of things (shockingly, it's difficult to steer a houseboat without an engine).
