Saturday, September 27 - We left the IVY Club this morning at around 9 AM with Marbles, Our Turn, and Blue Max. The IVY Club is still dealing with flood waters, as you can see in these pictures, and there are large logs floating all through the marina area. It's a nice place, though, and we'd stop here again sometime.
Only one lock to contend with today just below Peoria...and due to high waters we actually went around the lock and over the dam!
It's a wicket dam that can be lowered when waters are high...like now. (http://www.lrp.usace.army.mil/pao/wicket_dams.htm)
We saw more debris...more flooded buildings..
We passed a couple of tows going our way...
And we were wondering what exactly was submerged here...
All in all, it was another good day on the water. We're at Tall Timbers Marina in Havana, IL, and will stay here until the restrictions on the river are lifted...probably early next week. We walked into town today and located the grocery store. We're fine now. :-)
