We're Baaaack!

After a 12-day blitz of Iowa (Muscatine, Des Moines, Laurens, Guttenberg, each x2) we climbed back on Mara Beel last night. It is GOOD to be on the water again. The docks at Joe Wheeler seem eerily empty after the crowd that was here when we left. 

As soon as we return the rental car and get a pump out we will join the queue of tows and pleasure craft waiting to lock through the Joe Wheeler lock. Unfortunately the large lock is closed for repairs so all boats must use the auxiliary (small) lock. 

We are headed down the Tennessee to the Tombigbee Waterway. 

Mark's mother's health has improved and she is happily settled in the Laurens Care Center. As a bonus we got to spend some time with our kids and grandkids, see a few friends, participate in a walk for Parkinson's Disease, haul our dock out of the river, attend a family wedding, visit our Chiropractor, and get a haircut while we were in Iowa. We were busy!
