Joe Wheeler State Park Day 3

This morning our friends Wayne and Rhonda picked us up early so we could go to Sunday School and church with them. We met them last year in Michigan while they were Looping on "Help Me Rhonda." They took us to Publix and to their home for dinner. In March a tornado destroyed their marina, and damaged their boat and their condo. Wow. Their boat is almost ready to cruise again and they were able to move back into their condo about 3 weeks ago. Here's a picture of the dry stack boat storage area that has not been rebuilt yet.

When we returned to our dock we were surprised to find two couples from home! Jennifer and Jim completed the Loop earlier this summer on Silver Fox. They are now ready to sell the boat, so Jim and his brother-in-law Joe brought the boat to Florence while Jennifer and Denise drove down. They will head home tomorrow- it was fun to see them! We have connections- Jennifer's brother dates my Pilates instructor/chiropractor and Mark already knew Joe and Denise.

Next we met a future Looper couple on the dock. They had lots of questions so we invited them aboard and subsequently went out to dinner together at Rigatoni's in Florence - a great Italian restaurant.

The Rendezvous festivities will begin tomorrow afternoon- bring it on!
