Photos from Columbia:
After doing ground crew stuff like going to the store and doing postings for the website, I headed for Columbia, Virginia, Thursday afternoon. Right down from Dixie, yes, the heart of Dixie is where rt. 6 and 15 intersect near Columbia. I always thought that was cool. Meanwhile it was HOT in Columbia.
Some of the batteaux lazily came on by and stopped briefly on the way to Cartersville. Some ate lunch and some took on and off crew/riders etc. It was nice to see several batteaux in the same scene for the pictures. Elk Island is just down-river and most crews said they were going that way to see the aqueduct.
I then left Columbia for Cartersville.
