Savannah - at Thunderbolt at a dock

Ann likes to take photos of clouds for her pastels
What a great day for a ride north. We left with a rising tide, highly recommended for the shallows of Little Mud River and Hell Gate. We negotiated both without a problem. We even discovered a 5.1 MLW path through Hell Gate.

Thunderbolt is a large boat repair facility - really huge!
Jack Cothren, a fellow member of the Poughkeepsie YC, dropped by for a visit and we caught up on the happenings at the club. Then a couple that have been following the blog introduced themselves, Larry and Terry, and we had long chat in the cockpit over wine. They brought Richard and Jill along too and we all shared boating stories. Part of the fun of cruising the ICW (or anywhere) is meeting people along the way with like interests.

At night from off the back of our boat
As good as today was, Friday is not predicted to be so great. Thunderstorms are around all day long but then sometimes the predicted weather never materializes. Although most of the time it's the good weather forecasts that turn out not so good. We'll wait and see in the morning.

Recommend you stop by Tubby's Tank House in Thunderbolt ~ good food and good atmosphere.

Safe Travels!

Eddie, thanks for the tip but we had a lot to do, besides, we had to save room for the famous Thunderbird Krispy Kreme donuts in the morning.
