We started out in a pea soup. Between AIS and radar we weren't worried much about traffic. Tows are lit like Christmas trees and the occasional bass boat tends to stay out of the channel. But errant log were and always are an issue. So we moved a little slower until we were sure the fog had lifted.
Two locks were traversed today. Both were a little slow. The first only had the big chamber working, the other was just really busy so we had to wait for the small chamber to lock down a small tow. The 2 locks added another hour to the day.
|They were unloading this barged. I don't know |
what the contents were, but the dust flumes made
it look like there was a fire. You can see the stuff
on the banks. So... talcum?
Total lock count: 45
