Day 5, Subula to LeClaire, Ia Aug 15

Made 37 miles today with an 1 1/2 wait at L&D 13,   staying at LeClaire Coursey Dock tonite.     left about 9:00 AM ,  could have started little earlier, but a towboat had just went past so decided to wait for him to get ahead,  hoping we would not have to wait at next lock,  but then another appeared so we took off about 9:00,     still had to wait.           had a lot of traffic, towboat barges, work barges, coast guard work boat, and small boats,     sort of hairy for a few minutes.         later we idled for a while as we to talk to a small boater who was taking our picture.    then on to LeClaire.       will write more when I get time to do the full page for the day.        arrived to late and hard to write in dark.

 

Large open pool above lock 13 was calm and smooth for our crossing,  glad there were no high waves
