After the hub-bub of the cities, a peaceful river was just what I needed. It is incredibly wide in some sections with just a narrow channel , (100 feet approx) for the boats to travel. The mouth of the river is very grassy, a series of low islands and there are also several locks to travel up the river as well. Fishermen were out with their rods and little boats all along the river, there were beaches. Small houses along the shore and farms in the back ground.
