Rising Sun to Cincinnati, city wall

The wind was up yesterday and remained up today. That made getting off the dock at Rising Sun a little tricky -- the wind was pushing us up the river hard enough to over come the current, which was minimal. But we got big engines and managed, backing away from the pier with a roar.

The rest of the trip was fine. We passed a couple of tows, who have stopped hailing us. We figured by now they all know inQuest is a PC and (we hope) not a crew of bozos so no need to coach them on where they need to be. We already know.

Anyone know what the heck kind of boat that is?!
We got to the Cincinnati wall around noon. The city wall very close to the baseball field. It's Saturday. Oh, yeah, game day. For most that would be thrilling, being right next to the baseball game in a metropolis. But then we live in San Francisco 2 blocks from that city's ballfield, so we knew about the hustle and crowds and fireworks. Been there, done that, not that impressed. 

Getting to Cincinnati and on the city's wall.

Also, it turned out to be a glorious day, except for the wind. So everybody and his brother who owns a boat around here races up and down the river as fast as they can. Needless to say, we've been bouncing like crazy. We assume it will calm down once it gets dark. We'll see.

No locks today. The count remains at 19.
