This has been an easy day with just 16 miles of cruising and no locks. We are tied up at Gold Point Marina just above the Chickamauga Lock. Before leaving Shady Grove we used the marina van to go shopping in Soddy Daisy and stocked up for the rest of the trip. At one time on Chickamauga Lake many people lived in floating houses like the ones in the photo. They are no longer allowed but the originals are grandfathered. There are still 10 or so at the marina. Once the owners abandon them, the marina drags them to the end of the embayment and in the fall when the water drops they can demolish them and truck away the remains. Tonight we are having dinner at the home of our friends Bob and Gail.
