Oh, my gosh, we awoke Friday morning to a lite mist/fog on the water. It was 49 degrees at 7:00 am with a predicted high of 85. We waited for fog to lift then headed out around 9:00 am. We traveled most of the day thru a section of the Tenn-Tom called the Divide Cut. One quarter of all construction costs for the Tenn-Tom were spent on this section. It is 39.3 miles long and countless sluices and drainage structures had to be built; flooded areas had to be drained and disposal areas created. Originally it looked like a strip mine. Today the canal's banks are lined with stone, topped by grassy terraces and thick woods. On the other end of the Divide Cut is Pickwick Lake - another beautiful crusing area - Nasa has a Complex there just before Iuka, Ms. We made it to the Tennessee River around 2:30 in the afternoon and found a beautiful anchorage around 4:30 - not a bad day yet!
