EOT/ECT temps while towing

I towed my boat for the first time this weekend. Trucked pulled it great, it weighs less than 2000lbs total. I noticed that my temps on the freeway running 70 would run: ECT - 192 EOT - 201. When pulling it through town the temps got up to ECT-201 and EOT-208. This was an 85* day. Is it normal for the temps to climb that high? Once on the freeway they both come right back down.
