Mississippi River Day 52 (Duck Creek, 866 miles)

Today was a repeat of a few days ago. I got an early start for wind, and made 3 miles before hitting the next lock. Then I had to wait for 2 hours out in the open channel waiting for a barge to go through. Not fun.

Once I was through the lock I stopped on the next sandy island hoping to recoup some motivation for the day. By the time I actually was ready to leave again the wind had kicked up quite a bit, and I was blown around with some pretty big waves.

I made a few more miles before deciding it was getting to rough to be out on the water, and found a small creek to go up for a campsite. There was some slight rain in the afternoon, but nothing too bad.
