We are preparing for a cruise on the ICW from Gulf Shores, Alabama to Ft. Walton, Florida and back. This is a repeat of a trip we took 2 years ago. On the earlier trip Glenda was sick the whole time and spent most of the days asleep.
Until last week we were planning to trailer the tug to Demopolis, AL and travel down the Tenn-Tom waterway to Mobile Bay, but after discussing the current conditions (flooding) of the river with Fred at Demopolis Yacht Basin, we took his advice and changed our plans. We may try to do another Tenn-Tom trip for later in the year. Cruising on a little boat forces you to be flexible ;).
Grand-daughter Abby and Daisy (the dog) will join Glenda and me on the slow trip to Ft. Walton, and as of now, the weather looks like it will be great!
We'll try to post to the Blog each day with some pictures and accounts of the trip.
When we finish the trip, ending at Gulf Shores, our daughter, son-in-law, and Abby's little sister Bailey will meet us there. If the weather is good, we may give Bailey a chance to spend a night on the tugboat, and see how she likes the sailor life!
