Day 14 at the Arch

Left our anchor site about 7:15,  stopped at Alton Marina for gas and ice, then on to the Mel Price lock, got right thru.  passed the Missouri River mouth, where there was a lot of turbulent water and current picked up speed, and then went thru the canal bypassing the chain of rocks, thru LD 27 which is our last lock on the Mississippi River and on to the Arch.   We got a dock for the night at a industry barge repair facility about a 1/4 mile from the Arch,  went to arch in afternoon. a lot of pictures but not much narrative today.

Dock site is quite noisy tonight,  train close overhead , interstate traffic noise,   but we have electricity so will have fans going since its pretty hot.

Had scrambled eggs and Ham with onions, and green peppers for supper, chocolate pudding for dessert.

We docked at an industrial barge repair facility.   attendant gave us a little tour.
