With most of the traffic gone from the 4th, it was time to get a move on again. I headed out from Hairston in search of the thing we need most—gas. With over 100 nautical miles to the next gas stop, I needed to make sure that he boat was all filled up. Always be prepared!
My quest for gas led me to Pirate's Cove Marina, where I actually ended up staying for a few days again, because of some seriously choppy water. The fish fry we had completely made up for the storms. Can't go wrong with some deep fried green tomatoes!
While staying in Pirate's Cove, I also brushed up on my nautical history by visiting the Tom Bevel Lock and Dam Museum. We saw The Montgomery, an old steam paddle boat that was used for dredging and cleaning debris from the river. It's an awesome piece of the river's history.
