Another noneventful day. I stopped for a bit in a town to set up the generator to recharge all my batteries. There was a barge set up in the middle of the river with a tower on it. I thought this was a little weird. There is a nuclear power plant about two miles from it down river. Then a Coast Guard looking boat comes over to me as I am loading all my stuff and asks if I needed any help. I thought, ‘Yeah, can we trade boats?’ But I declined and I told him what I was up to. I think he might have been some sort of security for the power plant. He then went to the barge platform and I headed down river. As it turns out, I was shooting for a creek that runs into the Ohio for the night and that creek is right across the river from the power plant. I half way suspect that I might get a visit tonight. I hope not. I don’t know what the rules are for camping on the river by a power plant but I might get a lesson tonight.
I went past a couple of bald eagles. One flew off but I was able to get a picture of the other. You may have to enlarge the photo as I took the picture in a hurry. I was pretty cool.
I am spending the night just upstream from Owensboro, Ky. No problems with the motor after yesterdays entanglement. The weather is supposed to be clearing up. Life is good!
