Sep. 4, 2013---Raised anchor at 6:30 a.m. Eased out of the shallow embayment and headed down the Tombigbee waterway at mile 287.4, continued to Heflin Lock at mile 266. Lockmaster had the gate open for our arrival. Just does not get any better. Water was so smooth the days journey was incredible.  Watched a deer swim across the river. Arrived Demopolis at 2:30 p.m. Took on fuel and returned to assigned slip called home, in Kingfisher Bay Marina at mile 216.7
Not a bad 8 hour day covering 71 miles.
Near top of photo at edge of darker shadow is head of deer swimming.

Lighting not so great. Look close in center of photo just below lighter
colored part of tree and see the deer getting out of the water. 

Seems a must to take pictures of the white cliffs. Railroad near
town of Epes, Alabama. These cliffs are named Jones Bluff.

Co-Captain Keith seems happy with his turn at the wheel.
Perhaps feeling good about nearing Demopolis, AL
ending 967 successful miles.

Crew riding in comfort watching TV.

Taking on fuel at Demopolis.
