Got an early start with the goal of reaching Demopolis AL about 60 miles away. Heflin lock was waiting for us and we quickly locked through. The lock Master tossed a newspaper down to Ed.
The shoreline was largely undeveloped. The area is less populated and very “River like” vs much of the Tenn-Tom waterway.
Came to the White Cliffs of Epes. Pretty spectacular!
More white cliffs further downstream.
Reached the confluence of the end of the Tenn-Tom and the Black Warrior River just north of Demopolis.
Pulled into the Kingfisher Bay and Demopolis Marinas. This is one of the two best marinas of the trip with very nice facilities at a reasonable price.
We caught up with Scott and Kelly, the other pontoon couple and some of the other Loopers I’ve met along the journey.
We cycled into town for groceries and a cold beer. Downtown Demopolis is not thriving. There were no bars in sight, a reminder that we weren’t in Wisconsin!
Got back to the marina in time for a get-together with the Loopers. Everyone is going to hang out at the marina for at least another day trying to wait out hurricane Michael.
We got invited to come aboard the SS Nonni, who we’ve been traveling with at times during the past week.
It was interesting to see the inside quarters of one of the “pleasure craft”. Ed has since been mumbling something about buying a boat!
