Where have you been?
Yeah, I know it's been a while since we updated, but that's what happens here in the sticks where they don't know what the internet is.
Actually, we rented a car and drove to Lexington to visit my sister and her dog Winston. We got back to the marina Sunday afternoon and spent the rest of the evening reorganizing things in the boat. Monday it rained all day so we just settled in and relaxed.
On Tuesday, we started down the Lake. We stopped for fuel at Kentucky Dam Marina then traveled down to Kenlake State Park, about 24 miles. What a treat - we had cable TV for the first time in a month. We finally were able to catch up on the exploits of "House."
On Wednesday, the weather finally started to really clear and we made our way down to Paris Landing. With the weather clearing we could get some good photos of the scenery here. This lake is really pretty. There are lots of nice little coves where you can anchor for the night. I wish we had more time to explore this area. We're talking about coming back here in the spring instead of going up the East Coast.
Two of the other boat crews we've met along the way have decided just to stay in Kentucky Lake permanently. I can see why. It's just not an option for us as it does get cold here in the winter. Since we're trying to stay away from the cold, staying here won't work, but we will be back.
Today, we made our way down to Pebble Isle. The weather is fabulous - a perfectly clear sky and the temperature is in the 70's. Tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer. We're debating renting a car and going to Nashville from here rather than waiting till we get to Cuba Landing. The marina here will give us a very reasonable weekly rate and the car rental folks will pick us up here. We'll decide in the morning.
While we debate our next few days, here are a few new pics for you to enjoy.
Note the eagle's nest at the top of the daymark.
