The colors are a blazing at Joe Wheeler. This is a nice quiet little marina just a couple of miles from the lock. This day’s run was a short one. It only took us 3 hours and we had two locks.

We always wait until November to do our fall cruise. It’s a little cooler but the colors are better and the marinas are less crowded. This marina was totally booked last weekend by the folks of the AGLCA (America’s Great Loop Cruiser’s Association). These cruisers come from everywhere in all kinds of boats. Primarily retired folks who want some adventure in their lives along with the camaraderie of like minded individuals. It’s quite a trip. Read the link above.

This weekend it was pretty quiet. But there were a few cruisers out.

The above pic is our friend Sam from Pickwick. He’s a Yacht Broker for Jim Bennett Yacht Sales.

On this day he and his four legged first mate were locking up with us and heading to Chattanooga to deliver a new boat.

Still no messages from Memphis so… Tomorrow we head further upstream to Guntersville, Alabama.

Happy days
