Underway Again

9 Sep

We’re underway again.  We left Goose Pond Marina (still in Alabama) at 0630 this morning, in an attempt to beat any thunderstorms that seem to like to pop up in the afternoon… and it’s still beautiful, however…

…see that light green stuff…

…that’s called milfoil and it’s invading the river! It’s everywhere and growing ‘like a weed’ (I know, not funny…). It’s from all the fertilizers that “we’ve” been putting on our lawns/farms/etc. That stuff is choking parts of the river! Getting in and out of Goose Pond was a bit of a challenge, since it’s choking the channel and making our shallow water alarm sound off!

Anyway, we’re back on the river again, and working our way up to Chattanooga.  I’ll let you know when we get there…
