|Heading into Wilson Lock-we are alone, YAY!
|At the TOP of Wilson Lock - depth finder reads 123'
We can see Wilson Lake on the other side of the gate.
We did get permission from the lock master to fire up the grill & cook dinner while we waited. So grilled chicken & roasted new potatoes were on the menu for tonight paired with Starkville Sour Dough Bread (YUM - you must try it!) - no salad tonight since we've snacked on fresh fruit all day! Either we were hungry or it was exceptionally tasty - either way, delicious!
And we continue to wait. We really hope to get through this lock tonight - I REALLY don't want to start Wednesday "waiting on the wall". Plus, the lights are so bright (think BUGS) and we planned to anchor out so we had a better chance to see the star show from heaven tonight. Come on lock master - we have a plan! LOL!!
We are completely safe and our boat is fully equipped to travel after dark safely. While we both would love a cool shower & unwind from our day of "waiting" it is not meant to be just yet. But it is just a few hours until midnight...so yes, this day will end eventually.
YAY!! Lock Master just radioed....he will have the lock ready in 15 minutes...gotta go!! Thank you Jesus for safe travels & good nights!!
