Clewsiton to WP Franklin Lock and Dam/ Campground

We are docked right next to the Franklin lock in an RV park with 8 slips, much like the one at St. Lucie lock. We like this one a lot better! The grounds are immaculate, and their is a viewing platform for the dam. The best part is the $15/night fee.

It didn't take Mark long to make new friends. (big surprise, I know.) But sometimes I am still amazed. He ran into a couple near their RV and got to chatting, of course. These folks are from Connecticut and their last name was the same as former patients of Mark's back in Muscatine. What are the odds that they could be related? Mark should buy a lottery ticket, because the Connecticut travelers are second cousin to his patients! How does the man do this? He naturally invited them to the boat for a beer, and even remembered (belatedly) to tell me he had done so. 

Tomorrow we will move on to Fort Myers, a 12-mile run down the Caloosahatchee River that will take close to 2 hours. Then we will settle in for a couple months.
