Today we awoke early to leave Joe Wheeler State Park with eleven other boats to travel twenty miles together through two locks, Joe Wheeler Lock and Dam and Wilson Lock and Dam. Since we weren't sure how difficult it would be to get through the second lock, we called the lock master at each lock and decided to head out early with the hopes of minimal delays. We were thrilled to experience very few delays in either of the locks. We arrived in Florence a little after 11 o'clock with the rest of the day to walk around and explore and take a nap in the sun! We were able to borrow the courtesy car from the marina and go to the local grocery store for supplies. Tomorrow, we'll spend one more day in Florence and visit the Robert Trent golf course nearby. Then we'll head up the river to the TennTom Waterway. We have a long and winding river ahead of us! But thanks to the gold loopers at the rendezvous, we have a route map picked out and ready to be executed! Can't wait to share the adventure with you here!
