Mostly the day went fine, despite the cloudy skies and occasional drizzle. The only "not great" thing about the trip today was the section between Lock 20 and Lock 19 (to any boaters headed this way, make a note). This section was particularly narrow, and skinny (we saw 3 feet beneath us in places), and full of logs. Not just wood, logs. On a couple of occasions we put the engines in idle and pushed through whatever was in our way. Once we got passed Lock 19, however, the canal deepened, widened, and was more sparse with debris. Also, things got pretty!

Tomorrow the winds will come up a bit, so getting into Little Falls quickly will perfect. Besides, the brewery there opens Thursday. And there's good pizza!
|Turned into a lovely day.|
