October 8, Sunday Peoria to Havana, IL, aka Quiver Island Anchorage
Yesterday Peru, today Havana- world travelers! OK, it’s Havana Illinois on the Illinois river. The weather couldn’t have been better today and the river was beautiful as well, mostly with serene scenery (sounds like an oxymoron) but also with interesting river structures.
We treated ourselves to a buffet breakfast in Peoria while healthy triathlon runners passed us on the streets and then headed south. We then pushed off, and after a bridge and corner we discovered where some of the noise and slight smell was coming from in Peoria.
The river showed off all day.
An old lock wall was interesting…
As was the old Garvey Marine Landing.
I also enjoyed seeing dredging done on the river…
We had a group of five cruisers traveling together for a short time today as we went through the Peoria lock. We separated based on preferred speeds, and now there are three of us in this lovely anchorage behind Quiver Island.
