We arrived back at Clarksville. It is so nice to pull into a harbor and hear hellos called out by friends. Bill and Mary Lou from Ocean Commotion were there heading to Nashville. Rod and Susie from Bee Haven are in the process of heading back to Green Turtle like we are. The six of us went out to dinner. It is so nice to be with good people with good conversation about books and boats and lots of good laughter. These are the nicest things about the loop.
9/18 We got up early to try to make Green Turtle before dark. We got some boost from the current going down stream with us. The day was in the 80's but overcast which kept it from being blazing hot.
When the windlass is fixed, we will go through the canal from the Cumberland to Tennessee River that is just around the corner from here. We will head to Chattanooga.
