The weather was perfect cool, sunny, and light winds. We left exactly at 8:00AM with Carried Away following.
Tom (left) and Linda (right) came to the harbor entrance, waved, and wished us bon voyage.
At one point we passed this canoe that was resting while paddling upstream. The letters on the side say "Protectâ€¦.." Comment if you know what this traveler is all about. Canoeing the Great Loop??
A beautiful Palmer Johnson yacht, Captivator, followed us for miles at a little more than our speed and passed us just before we turned into Pebble Isle. The captain was extremely polite when making his request to pass by.
We walked 2.3 miles to the New Johnsonville Historic State Park in order to see the museum. Then we learned they had build a new museum on Hwy70 that was several miles in the opposite direction. When we got back about 7 boats total doing the loop had joined us on the dock and it was party time. One couple had just started out from Green Turtle Bay. While they didn't have a procession following them like the Katy Leigh in 2003, we had a great party at the marina to celebrate.
