July 31, 2013---Had a nice run for 7 hours including 3 locks. Traveled 54.2 miles. Arrived at Aqua Yacht Harbor on Pickwick Lake about 3:15 p.m.
Looking forward a train is seen crossing the bridge.

Whitten Lock at mile 411.9 on the TomBigBee Waterway.
It looks a little like a dungeon when first entering this lock that
has an 84' lift. This is the 10th lock between Demopolis and Lake Pickwick.
Total change in elevation with the 10 locks averages about 350 ft. 

Very few tows have been seen. Caught up with this one just before
getting to Lake Pickwick.

Glad to be tied up on the transient dock at Aqua Yacht Harbor
shortly before the rain storm arrived.

Looking across the harbor from dock the storm got quite dark.

Rain seen bouncing off the roof, landing on the boat down
the walkway in front of Dream Manor.
