Day 6 on the river

Pretty quiet day overall, we got through locks 17 and 18 lots better than we thought we would. At 18 we caught the lock just about the time it was going down to start the next barge, otherwise it would have been a least 2 more hours to get through. There are a couple of photos of the lock door open, and the next barge right there, we slid off to the side of it to get out.  The weather so far has been better than predicted, and we are fine with that. Most of the wet stuff looks like was North of us. Tomorrow we have hopefully 3 locks,with the last one (21) we need to do after dark. They are working on the locks during the day. We are just over 1/4 of the way to Mobile now.

Thanks everyone for the comments, we both enjoy hearing from all of you.
