Mississippi River Day 70 (Lee Island, 1217 miles)

Today was a very windy day. If it wasn't for the current I would have just sat out this one. Even as it was, I got off the river quite a few times today to wait out the strong wind.

The really annoying part is that the river is so low that the wingdams are high above the water level. They stick out into the river, so I can't hug the shoreline to get out of the wind.

A few barges passed my today, but nothing major. Most of the traffic has been at night. I'm not sure if that is done on purpose when going through the city or nor.
