Day 1 – Sept 6, 2018

Started this morning at River mile 824. Several family and friends at the launch. Shoreline view quickly became “undeveloped” and wonderful. Saw at least eight eagles, including one swim-stroking in the river pulling a larger fish to shore. That was a first time view for both Dave and I.

Got to lock 2 and passed through after an hour and a half. First lock passage ever. The lock crew was very friendly!

Docked at Prescott, confluence of the Mississippi and St Croix Rivers.

Rolling again for a few more miles to River mile 798 to a sand bar, actually a dredging spoils island for dinner and the second night on the boat.

Great day. More tomorrow!
