So Sunday we settled in and met many folks on their way to Florida full of stories of coming down the Mississippi which we will face at the end of this loop journey. (ugh!)
Monday our boat was loaded with lots of new electronics to aid our navigation and while the electronics guy worked steadily, we spent our time on chores. Which is why at dinner time I was just finishing up laundry and stepped from the galley to the berth in the bow to put the sheets where they belong and I fell into a hatch that had been left open to inspect wires. It was a shock and painful but my first aid knowledge kicked in and I had ice on deep bruises, a sprained ankle and a deep cut bandaged tightly to hold it together in time to enjoy some take out dinner!
My well wrapped ankle and toe. It is painful to walk on but people are so helpful and nice so I have a borrowed cane to hobble around with.
This will be a slight set back making Al do all of the boat work and meals for a few days. So now I am sitting in the marina office while Inspeyered 2 is hauled out of the water as part of this electronic installation.
We are hoping the work is completed sometime tomorrow and we will then be on our way on the Tennessee River, a wide and scenic body of water. Also hoping I will be walking on both feet by then!
