Day 4, Started down the Mississippi, Bellevue to Subula

After spending several days getting the boat ready, packed, and loaded with food and other items,  making some last minute improvements,  we finally headed down river.     We started from the Spruce Creek Marina north of Bellevue at about noon , reached L&D 12 in 45 minutes,   reached the mouth of the Maquoketa River about 2:00Pm,    and went on to Subula.      Stopped at the Subula city dock where we will be spending the night.
