Fog!! Fog!! Fog!! We woke to a very heavy fog on the river. It gave us an opportunity to use the radar. The radar did a good job of showing us the shoreline. It took over 1 hour for the sun to burn through the fog. I thought it never would. When it did, the view on the river was so beautiful.
As we headed to Nashville, the terrain was stunning. Sometimes the sides of the river were low with the leaves changing.
Do you wonder where all those barges come from? We passed a huge metal works where they make the barges. Here a new one being readied for the rivers. You can see how they will move it down sideways into the river when they have completed it.
On AIS, we can see tows coming on our charts before we can see them. We saw one that was named Madeline, the same as one of our granddaughters.
Finally, we arrived in Nashville.
At Joe's they actually carded me when I ordered a drink. John burst out laughing and said it was my birthday. So I got the full treatment with singing of happy birthday and a turtle sundae for dessert.
But none of that was better than all the birthday wishes from my family and friends and having dinner with John.
Tomorrow night, we have tickets for the Grand Ole Opry so blogging may be postponed.
