After paddling downstream a few miles, we stopped for breakfast at the home of River Angels John and Phyllis Verden in Lansing, Iowa. As you can see from these pictures, the view of the river from their house is spectacular! The food and fellowship was just what we needed, and was so appreciated by the whole team.
With an 8 knot wind coming up from the rear at about six o’clock to the boat, we paddled a total of 35 miles today. Using the signal rope again, we passed through lock #9 with no difficulties. I tend to like the signal rope because I don’t have to get the radio out or go to the trouble of locating the telephone number
