Sailboat “Chill” left early this morning. We hung out for a while, had a good breakfast, and enjoyed the cool and the whispy fog dancing on the River.
The shoreline and foliage keeps changing. Leaves starting to color, but not as bright as back home.
Beaches are everywhere!
Stopped at Bobby’s Fish Camp for food, ice and fuel. Bobby’s is a famous stopping point for boaters, and the catfish is supposed to be great!
We got the ice and fuel, important because the next fuel is 120 miles away in Mobile. Unfortunately the restaurant didn’t open for four hours.
So we pushed on.
Passed through Coffeeville Lock. This was my final of 41 locks. We always enjoy the herons and egrets who land on the lock gates and feed on the small fish that get trapped.
Passed by another”lover’s leap”, that was an impressive feature in the increasingly flat landscape.
Some industry, but overall this River stretch was undeveloped.
After 58 miles today, Ed declared it’s time to stop, I need a beer! So we beached for the night, about 5 Miles from Jackson AL.
58 miles today – 1519 total miles – 86 miles to the Gulf!
