Day 3 of our Great Loop Trip involved more locks and tows. We are becoming seasoned at handling all the activity. (Did you catch the play on our boat name?) The highlight of the day was locking through with one of the big tow barges. The Captain was very nice to allow us in the lock with him. We made it the Illinois river and scenery and water has change quite a bit. Open spaces, farmland, and wildlife abound on a much wider twisting turning route. Our stop for the night is Heritage Harbor Marina in Ottawa, IL. We are going to stay her for a day or two to do some projects and relax a little.
