While in Demopolis we talked to a number of boaters who are headed somewhere. None of them were leaving until Tuesday. Their plan was to avoid the Memorial Day boat traffic. But I gotta say, we've seen very little traffic at all. The most congested was just after Coffeeville lock, and even that just wasn't so bad. Maybe because we've been on the ICW, which is crowded even on an unremarkable Wednesday, but this has been amazing. We've had the river to ourselves most of the time. We locked through 3 locks in as many days, and each time not only did we have the chamber to ourselves but the doors were open and waiting for us. That just doesn't happen.
|Pretty section of the river. |
Sandstone bluffs appear a number of places.
Got anchored by 2 pm. The heat is coming back. Tomorrow it will be warmer, but we'll be in a marina.
