We made good time today from Panama City and docked at Legendary Marina. Apparently they aren't legendary for helping big boats dock. We had a bit of a rough time with the wind blowing and the tide rushing out.
We're in for the night. I did my last show for a week. Another radio station in our cluster has dibs on the remote broadcasting unit back at the station so I'm taking a week of vacation to finish the journey. We should hit Mobile or even beyond tomorrow. Our adventure takes us up the Tombigbee River then to the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway. We hope to make Columbus, MS by early week then Pickwick Lake by mid-week, at which point the trip will be over.
Below are a couple of shots of the paint that was peeled from the vessel during the gulf crossing. We're extremely lucky that's all that happened. She's going to need a fresh coat of paint when she finally gets home. But, boy, will she have some stories to tell.
