It's official, he has a BS in Math from the University of Tennessee!! So we can continue on our journey with proud hearts and calm minds knowing Erik is on a roll with adult life and taking good care of our baby girl, Domino.
So we called the next lock because we were only 8 miles away to find out about tows and the lock master told us he had a tow to lock through and it would be 2 hours before he could let pleasure craft through. We kicked back and enjoyed another hour of reading. But then when we were close to the lock right on time for the tow to be finished, it was apparent that 12 other loopers had backed up waiting for the lock. Because the lock was full, we then waited another hour twirling around in the windy lake chop and had lunch.
This is where Al works to parallel park the boat against the slimey wall while I wrap the line around the bollard that floats upward as the water rises.
Our initial view of tons of looper boats gathered for this rendezvous. If you tap on this photo and look to the right, those are all looper boats. We are not alone on this adventure!!! So for the next 5 days we will be meeting new friends, seeing "old" frriends, attending meetings and socials and in general having a good time. No posts until next Sunday at least. Nooo Worries!!!
