Got underway at 7:50 this morning under cloudy skies, but warm temps. We had a strong following wind all day which made steering a chore, but it was preferable to having a headwind.
When we were on "the river" we had a pretty strong current helping us along. Now that we were on "the lake" we lost that advantage and we were slower. So it took a little over seven hours to do today's 43 miles. We arrived a little after 3:00 to a sunny day and 83 degrees. We did the minimum chores, mostly getting our clothes off and drove back to Paducah.
Right now we are relaxing at Flamingo Row, enjoying beer, good Caribbean food, and being DONE!
