Nautical miles: 69.4 NM
Docked at: Peoria Day Docks- all by ourselves
Wow, this river is quiet - in a way it is kind of eerie because there is so little traffic on it. We passed a coast guard barge first thing this morning. They were out replacing markers from the looks of it.
|THIS IS WHAT OH DARK THIRTY LOOKS LIKE!!!|
|This is just the front of the load.|
- we finally got in and were out at 9:30. While we were hanging around above the lock Garth spotted a white pelican, according to the lock-keeper they just started showing up a few years ago.
|Looks like a White Pelican meeting -all in a row!|
|The Spirit of Peoria passed us later when we were tied up.|
|Rush hour on the Illinois|
Tomorrow we have another long day - 88 miles and the only place available for us to tie up to is a barge on the side of the river! Humm - had practice at that today!
