Day 109.  Peoria Heights, Illinois

You know you are getting close to the Mississippi when you see paddle steamers, we saw three stern wheelers today. The US has so many towns they must struggle to give them a name. So this morning we left Ottawa (Illinois), went past Peru and then Rome, tomorrow to Havana, next week Cairo, all very cosmopolitan.

Enjoying the Illinois Valley Yacht (IVY) Club, the view above from the club bar shows Gracie and the Illinois River beyond the breakwater. It is another hot day but with a bit more breeze and thunderstorms forecast for tonight. Heading to the No Wake Zone bar this evening for dinner.
