At first light we were heading farther up the Ohio River, bound for the Cumberland River. The current was gentle and we were making almost 6 kts speed over ground. Did you ever see something and just know that it was designed by a man? We had one of those moments not far from Metropolis.
The day was fairly uneventful, other than meeting a few tows. The Ohio is wide, with little current though,so drama was at a minimum. One of the more unusual sights was this old river boat, being torn apart for salvage.
We stopped for the night at a place called Cumberland Island Towhead, just half a mile from where the Ohio and Cumberland rivers meet. In the still water we saw hundreds of fish (we think Asian Carp) feeding at the surface.
