Into the Rivers

I’m anchored here 98 miles above Mobile on the Tombigbee River. Last night I stopped here. Today was a short day – I woke to thick fog and went back to bed and slept late.

It’s very relaxed travel on a broad natural river surrounded by wilderness. It reminds me of the Achafalaya. Lots of switchbacks. Current yesterday was moderate, and the water levels seemed a bit high. Once above the junction of the Alabama River levels and current went down. It looks like nice weather continues for the next few days, and water levels are forecast to be moderate. Smooth sailing.

Dempolis is my next planned stop, in 2 or 3 days. There are two locks between here and there.
