Once out of the lock, the faster boats quickly put us in the rear view mirror. Slower boats dropped behind and a few that traveled at our same speed stayed withing VHF hailing distance. During the day, we passed five large northbound tows before reaching our anchorage for the night at Bashi Creek. A power cat that had passed us earlier in the day was already anchored in the creek, and because it's so narrow, we slowly eased by them and anchored a little farther in. To keep Beach House in the center during the night, we used the dinghy anchor off the stern. We still found ourselves under the overhanging tree limbs in the morning, but the creek is deep right up to the banks.
