I am enjoying a second component of this adventure and that is becoming one with nature! Nothing but fish and birds in this cove with us!
The next morning we continue to move on. Entering Wilson Lock with other loopers who have left the rendezvous as well.
If you tap on this photo you can read our water depth below the bottom of the boat. It reads 111.5 ft.
Now it reads 13.8 ft which means we have dropped about 97'. Without the lock system, we would be traveling down rapids and the water levels would not be controlled for electricity generation.
Once my line is secure I can take in some sun waiting for this huge lock to fill, wearing my cute pink lift jacket for safety!
We are back in Pickwick Lake. This cove is our stop for 2 nights because it sits in a protected wildlife area and we had more of that comuning with nature time. My thrill was spotting loons migrating south for the winter and they gave us a lovely serenade both evenings! I also think I spotted a group of soaring eagles off in the distance. Tried taking pictures but the birds were too small to see in a photo.
