We left Florence in the morning around 9:20, trailing behind Now or Never. There were LOTS of fishing boats on the river rolling by us on this Sunday. We passed by a baptism going on in the river. The wind picked up midway through the trip. We eventually passed Now or Never, and then they followed us into the marina. At about 1:30 in the afternoon, we entered the TennTombigbee Waterway! The start of the next chapter of the river portion of our trip. We arrived at Aqua Yacht Marina at 2pm and were promptly aided by 3 loopers as we pulled into our slip and tied up our lines. It was such a welcoming feeling! They also promptly invited us to docktails on the dock later that day at 5:30. We went, along with about 30 other loopers all sharing boat cards, tips and stories of their journey. Tony took a notepad and pen and took a few notes! It rained overnight but cleared up by 8am, just as the forecast predicted. We enjoyed a lazy morning with a breakfast of eggs, toast, sausage, and fruit before getting started around 9am.
