River Point marks the confluence of the river's main stem with its two branches. The arches at the top and the bottom are designed to reflect the shape of the building and the curves of the surrounding banks--both literally and figuratively .

After docking, we ate lunch at one of the many riverside restaurants, and then took a walk along the river to enjoy the sights and sounds of life along the water's edge. I thank Jim Akerman and Luann Hamilton and their daughter Claire, for treating me to this wonderful view of their city and for being most generous hosts during my visit.
