Somebody used to see a light off the point of Mt. Vernon at the wharf, and when you got down there, there wouldn't be any light. Allie Nightingale who built the Nightingale Motel (his son built the trailer park) and I used to spend a lot of time on the river. It was poor fishing, but people had to have some good drinking whiskey. There was moonshining out there and we would go down the river and get it from the boats who would bring in good distilled bonded whiskey from Europe. I don't know too much about it and I've never had a drink of whiskey in my life but I liked the thrill of going in a fast boat down the river.
