We left Grafton at the comfortable time of 9:30. It didn't take long to arrive in Alton. After we sucked up the water in the bilge, we headed out to wander around town and find a lunch spot. We decided on My Just Desserts. We shared chicken pot pie soup and salad and then enjoyed a piece of Ledbetter pie and coconut cream pie. Then we wandered back toward the marina in time for a 5:00 captain's meeting. Tony lead the meeting and would lead the floatilla the next day and communicate with the locks. After the captains meeting, we walked with Blondie and Pilar to the same dinner spot that Kim talked about in her lifestyle video.
