We have traversed 2 sections of the Tenn-Tom so far: the Divide Cut, where the Corps of Engineers literally cut through the topographic divide between the Tennessee and Tombigbee River basins; and the Canal Section, which is completely man made and includes 5 locks with numerous twists and turns. Now we are on the River section, which extends another 118 miles south to Demopolis. This is Faulkner Country. "The Sound and the Fury" is my least favorite book of all time, by the way.  Tennessee Williams was born here. 

We used our day in the marina to relax and do a few chores. Mark did his daily "walkabout," getting to know the boaters here. He filled our water tanks and pumped out our holding tank. I made hummus, chicken noodle soup, and bread, then cleaned. 

We ate dinner at the Old Hickory Steak House with Susan and Foster from Quo Vadimus. The menu choices were sirloin, ribeye, NY strip or filet. Period.
