Cincinnati to Warsaw Kentucky

The send off of Island Hopper was favored with a bright and sunny, but chilly day. All hands were energetic and eager to get under way for the first part of the voyage, which will be from Cincinnati, Ohio to Green Turtle Bay, Kentucky.

The first day (October 20th) took us from Cincinnati to Warsaw Kentucky (63 statute miles) where we stayed at Smugglers Cove Marina. A good dinner at the marina restaurant, the Sunset Grille consisted of the special, T-Bone steak, baked potato and corn on the cob for $13.95.
The second day (October 21st) started late, since we had a relatively short distance to cover (65 miles) to Louisville KY. A very quick lock thru at Markland Lock and Dam (small chamber) started the day on a good note.
