Anchor down at 10:50 pm somewhere across the channel from Joe Wheeler State Park.  Secured the boat, cool showers & much needed rest.  Nope, didn't see the heavenly showers, I was disappointed in myself for not trying harder to stay awake but it was a long day of short distance (26 miles).

I wish I could report how beautiful the anchorage was at sunrise or how convenient the State Park was to reach with the dinghy...but no.  My wonderful husband woke at 5:00 & quietly went about the business of starting his day.  At some point just as daylight was waking me, he was pulling up anchor & we were under way at 6:20 am.  Yep, I slept in until the crack of 7:00 am!!  He's so precious!!  So no pictures of the evening spot but I can confidently report we are headed due EAST!!  Wow, the sun is SHINING!!  Thank you Jesus!

According to Chart Master Charlie we have a full day of driving with NO locks until Guntersville AL (72 miles).  So there is a real opportunity that we will complete our travel plan of TUESDAY today!!  Not too bad...

May you seize every opportunity to quietly do something nice for someone today...have a great Wednesday. Be blessed
