While it was sad to depart the rendezvous, we headed out early to get on with our journey. Since there were 65 boats and many were also going back to Pickwick Lake to head down the Tenn Tom, we wanted to get into the Wheeler and Wilson locks before everyone else was up. We were underway by 6:45 AM and joined a group of 9 other early boaters.
Here is the Wilson Lock (a whopping 93 foot drop) as we are heading back down river. This is looking back just after we had exited the lock.
