What a lovely day. We landed a lock only minutes from the Columbus Marina. They aren't quite as deep any more, so the drop is quicker. Our first stop was the Bevill Museum and the Steam Paddle Boat, The Montgomery. It was used to snag trees and limbs from the waterways. Beautifully restored mansion. Once again, our next lock was only minutes away.

Today we traveled 55 miles from Columbus to Sumpter Landing. This leg of the trip had more barges coming and going in both directions. Also, more weekend fisherman in fast flats boats. The Sumpter Landing Anchorage was quite beautiful and very quiet. Scads of bluejays darting in and around the trees. Pretty water flowers circled the anchorage. Of course, Buddy was more than happy to get to shore. Dinner on board: seasoned salmon, rice and chilled bean salad.

Tommorow we head for Denopolis, Al and wait there a few days for a chart plotter trip. These little technological wonders make the trip safer.
