Coming downriver from Maysville, KY to Madison, IN we ran into some fog which slowed us down. With 150 miles to travel and two locks to pass through, it would have been a miracle to have made the scheduled 8am arrival. With the fog, we didn’t stand a chance.

We finally arrived in Madison around 11am to give the guests a chance to stroll the 133 blocks on the National Register of Historic Places. This is one of the prettiest towns along the river and always a delight to visit. We snuck away to the coffee shop for good coffee and internet. We then snuck over for one last indulgence in the incredible burgers at Shipley’s Tavern which dates back to 1867.

Visiting river towns frequently over the years, I have somehow developed a special attachment to a few. Madison, Indiana is one of those “extra-special” ports and I will miss strolling it’s quaint streets.
