10/17 To the AGLCA Fall Rendezvous

On Saturday morning, we had our usual Skype session with our Anna and Abigail, our granddaughters in Texas.  Often, they will ask to see things on the boat.  Because we were docked right in front of the Nina and Pinta, I took them on a tour of those boats.  What a good time.

Then we headed down the Tennessee again.  There has been little rain in this area.  The locals tell us that the colors of the leaves will not be so good.  Many of the leaves are turning brown.  As we passed this mountain, it looked like is was draped in camo gear. 

This water intake is brightly colored and much newer than many you see on the river.

We arrived yesterday at Joe Wheeler State Park Marina in Rogersville, AL.  The American Great Loop Cruisers Association is having their Fall Rendezvous here.  The Rendezvous starts today.  Yesterday, at 4 pm the deck around the pool was covered with loopers doing docktails.  It is good to see some folks we haven't seen in a while and to meet others whose names we have heard.  There are many newbies here too.  We did a rendezvous before we started too and it was very helpful.

Last night, we had a full moon and the International Space Station went right overhead.  I took this picture of the full moon over the full marina.

This morning, the sun was rising on our day and the leaves were beautiful. 

The Rendezvous runs until Thursday then we will head toward the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway on Friday.
