Another beautiful foggy morning we are now anchored at mile 229.8 on the Tennessee River and hate to say it, but, it is gorgeous. Decided to just have another cup of coffee and enjoy the fog lifting. We have no set plans today - hope to make it thru Wilson Lock (95 ft lift) and maybe Wheeler. After passing thru Wilson Lock we will be in Wilson Lake which is dotted with homes (mostly McMansions), small private docks and parks. Unlike other TVA lakes, Wilson's shoreline is almost entirely privately owned. Yet along this reservoir's 46 miles of shoreline there are many isolated, protected, deepwater coves that are ideal for cruisers.

Approaching Wilson Lock & Dam. The 93 foot lift of this lock is the highest on the Tennessee River and one of the three or four highest in the world.
