We are Grafton bound for our first mail pick up day and a stop at the end of the Illinois River. The last seventy miles of this river are remarkably beautiful with abundant wild life, rock bluffs and small river towns. Once in Grafton we made a trip to the local post office where our son, Bart had sent our first batch of mail.
Art and Nancy, a couple we met through our blog, came to meet us while we were in Grafton. After giving them and their friends, Bill and Linda, a tour of our boat and talking about our mutual boating passions we all went to dinner at Fin Inn. We have never seen anything like this restaurant. It is very unique in that each booth sits next to a large tank full of catfish and other colorful fish.
