10/2 Quiet Day on the Tennessee to Scottsboro, AL

It was a pleasant day on the Tennessee River.  The winds were calm and it was warm but not hot.  There was slight fog on the water as we headed upstream to pass this tow.

The scenery was stunning.  Fall is in the air.
In this photo, you can see our wake on the water, too.
We went through only one lock today.  The Guntersville Lock and Dam hold back water to create Guntersville Lake on the Tennessee.  There were lots of boaters out on this Sunday.

We cruised into Goose Pond Colony Marina in Scottsboro, AL.  What a welcome!  Not only were the dock master and staff welcoming but we hadn't been tied up 4 minutes when the harbor hosts for Goose Pond, Ray and Patsy, arrived to say hello and offer any help if we need it.  The crew of Copper Penney that were on the dock behind us in Chicago are here too. 

Tomorrow, we will have a down day to do laundry, etc.
