|Thank you Lord for another sunrise!|
The word is – the marina owner is dredging the basin, selling the sand & will use the proceeds to build more docks! This is a very responsible business plan and a smart way to use the assets/materials on site to improve the livelihood of the marina. Kudos!
Of course, every boy LOVES a sand pile…now if we only had a few Tonka trucks!!
|My sweet husband just HAD to climb to the top!|
Last night (Saturday) we ventured off the property for dinner at The Red Barn. It did not disappoint!! WOW!!! Salad, vegetable gumbo, grilled yellow fin tuna, wild rice….YUM!! Charlie skipped the gumbo & had smoked ribs – just as tasty! A family owned establishment, only open for dinner and totally worth it!! If you are in Demopolis – it’s a MUST EAT!! We didn’t dare order the blueberry cobbler for dessert – but no doubt it would have been just a tasty. And just to be clear...it really is a barn!! Fun, Fun :-)
Our driver/host was Dan & Melinda – former boat
neighbors from Midway Marina in Fulton.
They are now living at Kingfisher Bay…small world!! It was great to see

|Our Journey pulling out - heading south|
Once I walked past the church, I had plenty of time to trot around the downtown area…and I got “turned around” (lost) in true Robin fashion. I pulled out my phone and realized…I needed to turn around…and pick up the pace! It was 8:30 & I needed to get showered, dressed and get back on foot to make the service…I get lost EVERY TIME I’m in a new town! Oh well…
Back to the boat with plenty of time to spare, I asked Cathy from Southern Cross to join me because…when I saw Charlie he said the people with the car reservation were going to the Presbyterian Church – 2 blocks from the Baptist Church!! Thank you Jesus!! We had a ride and met some new friends!! Double blessing!
The service was incredible…message in music & word and the NICEST folks!! So warm and friendly…very welcoming!! THANKS FBC Demopolis!! You set the bar high for next week’s service attendance…where ever I may be – thanks for your prayers Addison and Libby!!
Back to the marina & boats are coming in at a steady pace…some folks we met at Joe Wheeler – it’s like a reunion!! Looping Fun!!
Have a blessed Sunday!!
