The scenery did not change much today. We left Fulton early for a 7:30 am lockage through Fulton lock. 15 miles later we waited a very short time at Wilkins Lock. 5 miles after that we breezed through Amory Lock. Another 14 miles brought us to Aberdeen Lock. Then it was another 2 hours to Columbus. We traveled 59 miles in just about 9 hours today. Amazing to think that we could easily cover that distance in less than an hour by car! The wind switched to NNW this afternoon, and continues to blow about 30 mph this evening, so we were relieved to pull into the Columbus Marina and tie up around 3:45. We found many familiar boats and faces here. Foster and Susan from Quo Vadimus joined us for cocktails this evening. One of the boaters here did a reverse trick or treat and delivered candy to all the Loopers! Happy Halloween!
We have had 3 intense cruising days after our whirlwind 12 days in Iowa, so tomorrow will be a rest day.
