We all headed out early to get to River Diversion an anchorage that Fern had told us about.

John and I are the lollygagers as we can sleep a half hour later than these guys under sail and can only do 6 knots.

These are the wing dams Fern is complaining about.

And I guess this wing dam did catch someone by surprise.  Or maybe it washed up there.Not a good day for this boat.

AS we traveled before getting to our anchorage for the nite we past a town that I do not know the name of and saw the Pinta and the Sainte Maria again.
