Because we were anchored we kept an "all around" light on, which is both required and necessary. That apparently called every mayfly in the area. The back deck was coated. Normally Russ can blow them off with a leaf blower (who knew you needed a leaf blower on a boat) but the dew made them so wet they didn't move much. He worked on them a couple of times throughout the day, and got most of it done when we got to Marietta.
We did go through another lock today, Belleville. All chambers working, so we got in and out pretty quick.

That is a thing here. Most marinas have them.
The end of the day was awesome, however. My sisters-in-law came to visit and see the boat. I do not spend enough time with those wonderful ladies.
