So anyways, being a Sunday morning and being Mississippi there wasn't much open so Tom whiled away an hour or so with his giant camping backpack (to carry all the oil) and yellow bike drinking a coffee in McDonald's awaiting for the only auto parts store to do business on Sunday in Fulton opened.
We left the anchorage considerably later than we had hoped but made it through another three locks
That night, after a couple of near misses of running aground ourselves. we finally anchored at Blue Bluff Recreation Area, a very pretty spot just above Aberdeen Lock and Dam.
The next day (Nov 9), we awoke early to go explore the park and to get some exercise. After another 3 locks, and a passing view of the USS Snagboat Montgomery (in operation between 1926 and 1982), we finally entered the state of Alabama.
