TOTAL MILES TRAVELED TODAY: 26 NM
Wolf Island (MM192) proved to be another peaceful resting place and we were all off the hook by 8:45, heading for the Pickwick Lock and Dam that was about 14 miles away.
At MM 198 we passed by the Shiloh National Park which was established in 1894 to preserve the site of the bloody April 1862 battle that resulted in the wounding, missing or death of nearly 24,000 Union and Confederate soldiers.

Just a couple miles shy of the lock Ed, leading the lineup of us Loopers, spotted this American Bald Eagle surveying his kingdom from the top of a naked tree. He certainly commanded our rapt attention and cameras were clicking from all the boats.

THAT'S A MEGA WOW!
Todd, Dan and I used the marina’s courtesy van for a trip to the Lowe’s in nearby Savannah, TN. We were lucky and found the needed water expansion tank. Dan switched it out with our damaged one and we are now all set. What a guy!
Tomorrow may hold a tour of the Shiloh National Military Park, stay tuned for the update.
