Wow! What a rush! James and I made it through the 68 foot drop in Bankhead Lock onto Holt Lake, got some close-up views of Bankhead Dam, and locked back through on Thursday. We acted like 11 year old kids. But, sometimes in life you have to do something a little crazy and have some fun. (My wife tells me I’m about the maturity of an 8-year old anyway, and my sister-in-law thinks I’m closer to my 19-month old nephew).
After 8 hours in the boat on a hot day, several hours of which after my hat blew off and sank, I crashed on the couch when I got home, no dinner, and woke up at 2 am. Still worn out, so here is a short preview of some of the pictures we took today (sorry, a little grainy). James and I will have more pictures and video later. The sounds in the lock as were great…so the video is awesome.
