Midway Marina 393.8 to Columbus Marina 335.0 = 58.8 miles

Our fourth lock is just one mile away from Midway Marina.  After a phone call to the Fulton Lock at 7:00 am we got an all clear and left.  Our next lock, Wilkins was also a breeze.  Five miles down the waterway we are at the Armory Lock.  We cleared three locks and it is only 9:30 am!  Our next and final lock for the day is the Aberdeen Lock.  We are now on our way to Columbus Marina.  At 1:30 pm we are docked on a very nice wall.  We took their courtesy car into town and drove through the historical and new sections of town.  It is a larger town than we thought with a population of approximately 24,000.

The Mississippi Railway runs along the waterway on the east side.

This is an 'Ox Bow', an inlet off of the waterway.
