We reached our winter home across the river from Louisiana, MO on the 8 th. Mara Beel will be hibernating in Two Rivers Marina-- probably her first winter outside of heated storage. We had a beautiful trip up from Port Charles. We had fog early but it quickly burned off and turned into a perfect day.
Golden Eagle ferry
2 locks and 1 railroad bridge opened right on cue for us, as if they knew it was my birthday!
This guy hung around our slip for quite awhile checking us out with a malevolent stare. Maybe we were in his space. Then he or she brought reinforcements.
We will go back to the boat later this month to get her winterized. The end of the boating season is always bittersweet.
