Day 17 – Sept 22, 2018

Left Hoppies in the rain, perfect send-off from the place! Nice houses maybe related to the mining/quarries in the area.

Loading limestone.

Life on the boat in the rain. Reg did most of the driving. Tarps down most of the day.

Made a brief drive by of the Kaskaskia lock and dam. Asian Carp jumping around the boat. Wish I could get a good picture.

Continued down to Chester, home of Popeye. The only place to land was occupied by the American Queen tour boat. We need a place to rendevous with Doug for the next Crew change.

Found this inlet across from the boat landing that should work out nicely for overnight.

53 Miles today – 740 miles total
