Another windy day. Jake and Julie left in the early afternoon, and Leanne and I stayed to rest and work until 4pm. We headed down the river, and found Kinder's Restaurant just before it closed. We had a quick bite to eat there, and camped on the other side of the river at Riverside Harbor dock because Leanne had a nasty migraine. We slept on the dock, but as rain came through, we pulled our sleeping bags up to the picnic area and slept on the concrete there. Not only do I not have a phone anymore, but my sleeping pad deflated for the first time on the dock at Cedar Hill, and so sleeping on the dock and then concrete at Riverside was not exactly comfortable. We are hoping to get down to Alton Illinois tomorrow where Leanne's uncle will pick us up. My boyfriend, Nick, is in St. Louis this weekend visiting his friend Jeff and I'm really excited to see him. Leanne's been pushing hard with me to make sure we don't miss this date.

You have such a nice trip. I never did kayaking, thou it seems really interesting as for me. Maybe one day I'll try.
