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.
