Grafton, Illinois

Because of the high water and debris on the Mississippi we stayed here in Grafton for more than we had originally planned.  So while we're here with about 38 other looper boats we stocked up on groceries, and supplies to last us for a while.  Once we start down the Mississippi, Ohio, and Cumberland River there is no place to stay with any power except for a place called Hoppies which will be our first stop.  The marina here is very nice with a restaurant, swimming pool, covered slips, and a courtesy car for running around.  It will take us four days to get to Green Turtle Bay Marina on Barkley Lake in Kentucky.  We should be leaving on Wednesday, 9/17 and get there on Sunday the 21st.  We will not have Wifi or little cell service the until then.

Back in a shed, just like at Tower Park

Came into Grafton today, their home port, and crossed their wake.  Congratulations  John and Pat on "Satisfaction"
At the Arie's Winery on top of the hill in
Grafton.  There's the Mississippi River and if look close you can see the marina and a very
large tow with several barges going North.
