Heading to Demopolis was smooth we had only one lock to go through called Heflin Lock. This leg was 54 miles, Demopolis sells lots of diesel fuel so I fueled up here with about 224 gallons. This will be the last time I fuel until I make it home. We saw some beautiful limestone bluffs on this section of the river, and lots of big alligators.

Clotilde signed this bollard a few weeks ago and our friends behind us in their boats happened to see it and added on to the signatures.
Demopolis Yacht Basin fuel dock, there is also a nice man made basin owned by the same people with about 100 covered slips adjacent to here I wasn’t able to find a photo of
Demopolis to Coffeeville AL, Bobby’s Fish Camp. This was a long day at 97 miles and one lock, Demopolis L&D. Bobbies is the last stop on the river until the Mobile Convention Center 119 miles south of here, and the first marina is Dog River which is another 14 miles past the convention center. Bobby’s is a land mark on the river, the tows slow as they pass the small marina to keep from waking anyone. The ladies in the restaurant make the best fried catfish around, people stop just for this!
When I first bought Pura Vida Bryson and I came down these rivers from Nashville and I found my entry in Bobby’s guest book from 2014
Marcus, Mom Caroline, Phil, Pam and I at Bobby’s getting a late dinner. Connie, Marcus’s wife was nice enough to take this picture!

Arial of Bobby’s, small joint with a huge heart . Sometimes they tie the boats up 4 and 5 wide when there are lots of people passing through. They also rent out camp sites.
