Moving South… in search of heat it was 27 F here!

We spent a couple of days here in Demopolis, but the plan is to leave early tomorrow.  We hope to  go  over 90 miles to Bobby’s Fish Camp, which is the next place with a dock that we can tie up to.  With the river running high and swift, we’d like to be somewhere secure or in a good anchorage.  We only have a single lock to go through and that is about 3 miles from our present location.    We will be traveling with “Touch of Class” and “Longfellow”,  two boats that travel at about the same speed as us.   There are now about  6 or 7 other looper boats  here in Demopolis,  4 of them arrived today- everyone is in a hurry to get down to the Gulf for Thanksgiving, so I expect the river will be busy tomorrow.

We have a flock of Canada geese  hanging out at the Marina- so we feel right at home- just like Boundary Creek.IMG_4087 IMG_4090With the cold weather the last few days the trees are quickly changing to more familiar autumn colours,  but very few of the trees have completely lost their leaves.
