Grand Harbor Marina, Iuka, MS

 We left at 0820 bound for Iuka, MS and Grand Harbor Marina. 58 miles and one lock called the Pickwick Lock.  Eddie took his shift at the helm.
 Nice cruising on the TN River.
 Nice camp along the river built from shipping containers

We passed a dredge removing sand and gravel from the river bed. 

Pickwick Lock 55 foot lift.  The lock was understaffed, it was Sunday so we had to wait (at anchor) for 2 hours for a towboat to clear before being called to the lock.  Eddie is honing his skills for the locks to follow.

Love the courtesy car we took to dinner.  No charge at most marinas.
