Almost to Salt Water!

Day 18
October 28, 2014

Depart: Anchorage at mm95/7:11
Arrive: Anchorage at I-65 Bridge/3:40

Weather Conditions: another perfect day

We really covered the miles today.  With no locks to work through we just set a course for down river and off we went.  We did meet 4 tows heading up the river that slowed us down a little.  This part of the lower Black Warrior has many switch backs that are not the best places to meet up with a barge. Pleasure craft have to time their meetings so that there is plenty of room for both vessels.  There is also more industry along this stretch, probably because of its proximity to Mobile.

                                     Some of the many industries lining the riverfront. 

Our anchorage today is at the 21mm just north of the I-65 bridge.  It is not going to be the quiet, peaceful anchorage that we are used to.
