|Lots of Turtles along the Dismal Swamp|
|Canal was originlly dug by hand in the mid 1700's|
Yesterday we spent a lazy day motoring down the dismal swamp enjoying the sunshine. We rafted up with Dave at lunchtime and awaited the opening of the first of two locks we will go through on the canal. Tonight we are rafted up with two other boats just outside the second lock awaiting the 8:30 am opening. Al and Dave visited the auto supply and grocery stores before we went to dinner at the Mexican restaurant all within a short walk of where we were docked.
