Day 11, Wed. Aug 21

notes got underway about 7:15 this morning, stopped in hannibal, but no one at arina, used restrooms and continued on. went past large cliffs, must have been where Tom & Becky got lost in cave.     thru ld 22 wind much lower today so easier traveling. Stopped again at Louisisana, Mo and walked for gas, then picked up ice and oil at Twin Rivers Marina. this was a real nice marina and well marked,

then continued on another 4-5 miles and pulled in behind order island, RM 279, on Illinois side, anchored out about 100 yards from shore in 5′ of water.     Milton washed clothes and stan cooked sloppy Joes for supper, chocolate pudding for desert.    Nice evening, very few bugs, but we still went

went past a dredging operation, they were picking sand out of channel anddumping it along side out of channel
