The next day several of us did a shopping spree at wallmart to replenish supplied. We used the courtesy van. John and I tried as we might to find course ground coffee to no avail. Apparently we cannot even ground coffee in the stores as they took these out due to the mess it created.
This is John on a bad day HAHAHA. This we found when we were coming back from Walmart.
That night they had a campfire out behind the pool as shown here but John and I went for a walk and came back to the boat early as shopping tends to tire us out. We must be getting old. By the way the manager at the marina spent about an hour with us the day before telling us all the spots to see and where to watch out for things in the river before we get to St.Louis.
The next day we got up a little late and headed out to make it to Henry’s.
WE came past this river and spotted the young couples boat that we meet in Joliet so they have made it this far already.
I took a picture of the rock wall face heading into the river they where on.
Along the river we came past this car show so I had to take these pictures for John.
More and more tugs and barges this must be barge heaven.
Saw these guys while we were waiting at the lock to go through. we had an hour wait but the scenery is astonishing.
The rock formation behind this boat is part of the park upon closeup you will see people on the platforms looking out.
This house has seen better days.
They are doing construction on the bridge and guess what crane we saw working I guess our friends back home may get a kick out of this.
If you zoom in you will see it is ALL Rental crane.
Well enough for now we are almost at Henry’s
