Feels like HOME!  We made it to Florence Harbor Marina & tied up approx 4:40pm.  It was so nice to see a familiar marina and surroundings.  Shortly after we were settled, Charlie's brother & sister-in-law pulled in from Lexington TN!  What a welcomed surprise and familiar faces!  We had a wonderful dinner with them & an even better visit.  We so appreciate their effort to meet us in is cool!

Speaking of cool...according to the most recent forecast, we are looking at lows in the "low 60's" in Chattanooga the later part of this week.  Ummmm, it is August, right?  We'll see what the future holds.

I didn't get many pictures this afternoon, after the clouds moved out, the sun was shining brightly & I was crossing Pickwick Lake deep in thought about God's creation. One pressing question is: How can the waves keep rolling when the wind stops blowing?!?!  There was no breeze! I even ventured off course a few times to catch a little wind....nothing, nadda, zip.  Interesting thought for a 5 hour crossing.  Do you have any ideas?  Would love to hear them.

Tomorrow we head further on our adventure - planning to make it to Guntersville AL.  According to a few charts we are looking at 100+ miles.  Not a bad distance but we have a couple locks to navigate - our schedule will have to sync with the lock master.  Should be an interesting day...

I plan to start my day with a fun run around my old route. We had the boat here from January to June & I had the best time running in this area.  It was a great starting point after foot surgery in November. Looking forward to a Terrific Tuesday!!

Rest well friends...zzzzzzz.
