Tennessee River

The inland rivers are getting better and better.

Ginger Bay anchorage

We took the canal that connects Barkley Lake to Kentucky Lake and we are now technically on the Tennessee River. What a nice river/lake system.  We are really enjoying our time here. The people we have meet lately at the marinas have been so nice and welcoming, and have, what we've been told is the southern accent and drawl! Oh my, and apparently it is going to get more pronounced as we move along... I think we'll be needing a translator, y'all!

Our stops along the Tennessee River, to date have been: Ginger Bay, Ky; Paris Landing Marina; Pebble Isle Marina near New Johnsonville TN; Cuba Landing, near Waverly, TN; Clifton Marina, TN; and the Wolf Island anchorage.

To create Kentucky Lake, they flooded many communities, here is an old barn.

Mornings are getting cool and foggy

Some nice houses around here.

We are starting to see some trees change colors, and the nights are getting much cooler. It's time to start accelerating our southern descent and see what the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway (Ten-Tom) has to for us.
