Keokuk Yacht Club

Dream Catcher docked in front of the clubhouse

 It was another 9 hour day, and again we were lucky to boat right in to all 4 of the locks.  There was no waiting for other traffic.  One reason for our “luck” was the low water that had stopped a lot of the barges.   We passed 3 barges that were grounded in the channel, waiting for a dredge.  Of course, the dredges were in high demand, and it would take several days for them to arrive and dig out the channel. 
We were glad to arrive at the Keokuk Yacht Club where we tied to the outer wall where the water was deep. 
Sunday arrived with a lot of rain, but we had no plans to move.  We were waiting for a fuel truck that we had scheduled for Monday morning.  We had a quiet day aboard Dream Catcher.     
Total miles:  85      Total bridges:  5       Total locks:  4
