We had a good night on the river. We used to sail alot at night on Grand Lake, OK.
That was where we met Larry (River Nomad). He was a die-hard sailor and poked a bit of fun at our 26X, with it’s 50hp motor. Now we both have trawlers.
Larry, Diane & River Nomad made it safely back to OK. We’ll look forward to meeting them again for a cruise.
At the entrance to Silver Glen Springs..we anchored and took the dingy in. The moon was still up . But the sky was getting pink in the E. That’s Slow Motion, in silhouette, on the horizon. Jim saw this flock of birds. I was trying to get a nice shot of the boat in the sunrise and accidently got this. The camera focused on the palm leaf.
Using the oars, we checked the depth over the bar to see if we could clear it. Looked like we had 2 inches more water than needed. Once back at the boat we proceeded in …slowly…no problem…
Carole & Ed with Southern Cross…were already here. Ed was doing a bit of cleaning up when we rowed up to say hello. George was visiting with,Kerry, one of the owner’s of Tursas. She and Jerry have just come up from the Keys…and are heading to NY aboard their Albin 25. We were invited aboard Southern Cross for strawberry shortcake with Carole & Ed. Kerry & Jerry joined us. Ed is waiting to help us tie alongside. Some exceptional people spend lots of time aboard boats.
We are heading N to Cumberland Island, GA, in the morning.
