We pulled anchor and moved the boat at dead slow from “our beautiful little anchorage” (Vicki’s words) back toward the mouth of the bay and to the Joe Wheeler State Park Marina. This is the site of the upcoming AGLCA Rendezvous October 14-18. We had asked if we could come in a couple of days early as we wanted to work on the boat some before it got started.
Arriving at 1000 we were given a slip 618 right in front of the hotel and conference center. We took care of the marina registration and then I got right at the first task of washing the entire boat from hardtop to gunnel. It was great to get the spider poop off of everything.
We relaxed and eventually went to dinner with the crew from Blue Haven that had come in earlier in the day. Many looper boats were beginning to congregate here for the Rendezvous. It will be interesting to renew acquaintances with people we have met previously and to meet some of the people we have been hearing on the radio or reading about on the AGLCA Forum. Boats we have been ahead of will finally catch up here.
