Alton

So for our last day we went shopping drove every road in Alton picked up propane touring and had a great day.  Took  a tour of the dam we would be going through the next day.  Showed us the water level in 1993 flood.  I will show more on this later.

After the tour we took the car back and got to the marina to find out that a bunch of people leaving the next day where all meeting up in the building at our marina.  So we went for a bit and everyone was leaving at 6:30 early for me now I retired or retarded not sure which.
