We are staying in Alton a few days; the next stop down the river “Hoppies” was full. The locks are back operating, but it did cause some back ups. The Alton Marina is a very nice marina to hang out for a few days. We rented a car so we could complete some shopping errands in the St. Louis area. The screen on my laptop got broken, so I took it to a Microsoft store for repairs. We got supplies at West Marine and plan to stock up in Alton because further along the river we will be anchoring and supplies will be much harder to obtain.
The plan is to leave on Tuesday for points farther down the Mississippi river.
