Sisters

2 Sep

Bushranger is contentedly sitting next to her very ‘flash’ sister, Summer Wind, at Goosepond, Alabama.

Please don’t think that I’m slighting Bushranger when I call Summer Wind ‘flash’.  This is not a Joan Crawford and Bette Davis relationship like the movie “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane”…

heaven forbid

  No, no, no – think more Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen in “White Christmas”…

…where each sister is appealing in her own special way.

Anyway, today Bushranger and Summer Wind wandered down the Tennessee River…

…working their way towards the beautiful city of Chattanooga Tennessee.

If it had been only Summer Wind, the journey from Guntersville to Chattanooga would not take the three days that we have planned.  Nope, Summer Wind lives up to her name – she flies like the wind (rumor has it that she can top out at 20 miles per hour!)…

…while little Bushranger’s engine-room gerbils are breathing hard just trying to maintain eight miles per hour.

…whatever…

The bottom line is that we BOTH made it to Goosepond…

Plans for tonight include a stop at The Docks, a wonderful restaurant right across the street from the marina. The ‘house specialties’ include southern favorites like ‘shrimp and grits’ and ‘chocolate pie’ (oh man!).
