A side note here: Several days later, Randy and Barb (Lazy Dolphin) entered Sinking Creek to anchor. They hadn't gotten too far when Mike showed up in his pontoon boat to lead them to his dock to tie up!
Since it was early in the day and we had finished touring the "town," we decided to continue on to another anchorage in Blue River. We spent a quiet night, anchored, with the stern tied to an over-hanging tree.
This next leg of the trip was one that had us concerned. We were coming to the Markland Lock in Warsaw, Kentucky. More than a year ago there had been an incident, that we've recently heard was caused by lock operator error, which resulted in a lock door falling off. This lock, like other's I mentioned has two chambers, so one is still functioning.
Once it got dark all the activity tapered off and the air cooled down giving us a great night's sleep.
Anyway, we're docked on the up river side of Cincinnati so we're definitely more than half way now. So far we've been surprised at how often the banks are not developed at all, even though we've seen heavier tow traffic that most places we've been. We'd expected it to be much more industrial. It's been beautiful and has really reminded us of the Tennessee River.
