After leaving Columbus, I didnt have too far to go to my next stop, an anchorage at Hairston Bend. There was so much river traffic, though, from the 4th of July that it took a good little while to weave through it all. Plenty of fireworks have been rocking the bourbon, while people have been celebrating our Independence Day. Perhaps this bourbon will have some nice smoky notes to it!

Outside of Hairston Bend, there's a little island that people like to go play horse shoes at and grill out. It was a great place to celebrate, while waiting out another big storm. Luckily, this time it was at night, and I didn’t have to drive through it.
