We left Midway marina Thursday with the intention of traveling to Columbus a 60miles day with 4 locks, well it turned out to be more than was possible due to waiting on the locks and the sun setting earlier. We ended up passing up Columbus and ended the day in Aberdeen. It was an interesting entry way though very well marked.
|Erika Lin leaving Aberdeen MS, I love this picture, it looks as though they are cruising into the trees, but they were actually following the markers.|
|This is the office for the marina at Pirates Cove our next stop.|
On Saturday we set out once again this time bypassing Columbus and headed into Pirates Cove a 51 mile day (trying to make up some time) the locks were much better to us on this day. Pirates Cove, though not much of a marina the people were extremely helpful and it was a quiet night for us, dinner on board and early to bed. We have been traveling with ErickaLin for the last week or so and today we picked up another boat while at Pirates Cove, Ken and Barb on LoopDreams they too were at the rendezvous at Joe Wheeler but we had not really met them until now, the 3 of us would be traveling together for the next few days and upon leaving this marina our next night would be anchoring as there are no marinas for over 90 miles.

When we do leave here we have 213 miles to Mobile AL and no real marinas along the way so we will be anchoring out, it should take 4 days we are hoping to make it in 3 we will see how that goes.
