Yes we are having a great time. It could get a little hairy as we leave Davenport. First a railroad swing bridge & close behind that a lock & dam. It can be nerve racking circling around as you wait for the train to pass over the swing bridge. With the strong current, we would be in a whole lot of trouble if our engine should die as we are circling. Yikes! A nightmare to be sure. We will see how it goes Monday. There will also be lots of pleasure craft out and about due to the holiday Monday, too. They can be a little annoying at times. Later Susie
