Day 14

 

POWER PLANT AT BUCKS, ALABAMA

 

AS THE RIVER TURNS

We got a look at the back side of the power plant too as we worked our way around the river bend. (blue dot). Pretty much the way our course went the entire day, lots of curves in the river.  Travel 5 miles to go 2 miles further south.

 

CHANGING LANDSCAPE

About 25-30 miles from Mobile Bay.

Seeing more moss in the trees along the riverbank.

 

CHANGING LANDSCAPE

About 25-30 miles from Mobile Bay.

The sand bars have disappeared and have been replaced with mud bars.  The mud bars come and go with the ups and downs of the tidal waters from Mobile Bay

 

WAITING ON A TRAIN

Waiting on a train to cross the lift bridge about 25 miles above Mobile Bay. After the train crossed the bridge operator raised her for us and we were on our way again...

 

LAST BRIDGE BEFORE MOBILE

The last bridge before we enter Mobile Harbor.

 

 

SHIPS IN MOBILE HARBOR

We went under the last bridge and around the bend in the riverand entered Mobile Harbor.  It was an instant change from the swampy, mud banks on a sleepy river to the hustle and bustle of Mobile Harbor. Ocean going ships loading and unloading their cargo. Harbor tugs everywhere and even a Golf Coast Duck Ride. We seen the Duck Ride on the city streets of Mobile later on as we were eating dinner in town.

 

MILITARY SHIPS BEING BUILT

Directly across the river from where we moored they were building these babies at Austal..

 

DOCKED IN MOBILE, ALABAMA

It's Captain Ron, RiverBill, Raven and Ramjet on the Chamber of Commerce Courtesy Dock in downtown Mobile, Alabama.

Almost a 1,000 nautical miles from St. Louis, Mo.

PS: We stopped a gal on a bicycle named Jordan to take our picture.  Thanks Jordan !

 

 

 

The Pictures of the Day....... are from our travels on Sunday, Nov 19, 2017... Day14. 

 

The "Current Reprieve" headed out from an over night tied up to a tree along the bank of the Tennessee–Tombigbee Waterway and continued the journey further south and ended up in Mobile Alabama.

 

 

Life is good..... Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings... Yah mon

LAST RIDE 2016

 

 

 

The Pictures of YesterYears.....  were sent to us by Captain Tim Crawford

 

Hello Bill,


Mark Zuibleman, the lone PWC rider was nice enough to take the photo of Lori and I beached on Iowa Island Thursday November 17th.


The fall colors along the bluffs between Piasa Creek and Grafton were subdued this year, but nice.


See you on the river,
Capt. Tim Crawford

Missouri River Management

Officials Set To Decrease Releases From The Gavins Point Dam........

 

Officials have announced that the releases from the Gavins Point Dam will be decreasing throughout the remainder of November, and then lowered incrementally 3,000 cfs per day until arriving at the winter release rate.

 

John Remus, chief of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Missouri River Basin Water Management Division stated that based upon the September 1 system storage, the releases from the Gavins Point Dam will be at lease 17,000 cubic feet per second.

 

Remus noted that thanks to higher than normal runoff toward the end of summer and into fall allows the Corps to provide higher winter releases which will provide additional hydropower generation during the winter months........

U.S. Waterways

Toxic Algae Becoming More Of A Hazard........

 

A few years ago, Todd Steele was participating in a bass fishing tournament on Lake Erie, which was covered by a thick green scum.  Steele ended up being severely sickened by what turned out to be toxic algae, which is a rising threat to U.S. waters.

 

The toxic algae is increasing from an occasional nuisance to a severe, widespread hazard that is overwhelming government efforts to curb a major contributor, fertilizer runoff from farms.

 

Scientists say that several of the monster algae blooms are caused by an overdose of agricultural waters in warm, calm waters.  The fertilizers intended to cultivate crops ends up washing into waterways, providing a veritable smorgasbord for algae........

U.S. Coast Guard

Coast Guard Halts Runaway Boat........

 

On Saturday, the U.S. Coast Guard stopped a boat that had runaway near Pamlico County, North Carolina.  At around 9:45 am, the Coast Guard was called out for a report of a driverless jonboat turning circles in the water.

 

When responders arrived, they found that a wake had thrown the boat operator into the water and caused the boat's tiller to turn hard over.  A nearby boater was able to pick up the boat's operator.

 

Responders were able to stop the pilotless boat, and escorted the vessel and it's operator to shore.  Coast Guard officials note that the pilot was not wearing a kill switch, which could have prevented the incident form occurring........
