Ready to leave Demopolis AL, and head down river

What a crazy few days this has been! We got put back into the water last Friday and made our way to our designated slip at the Kingfisher Bay Marina. As we were going, we lost our VHF radio and GPS... humm, that is never a good thing. The cause: the house batteries - it's our fault, we didn't check them often enough and they were dry. (meaning dead).  We ordered 4 new 6V batteries Saturday and decided, what the heck... lets go for a little road trip while we wait for them to arrive. So yes, Sunday morning we were off to Louisiana for a little road trip. (it's been a bucket list item of mine for years!!!) The batteries are accessed by removing the captains/drivers seat and storage locker... A very awkward spot to work We got to New Orleans, Louisiana (aka: NOLA) late afternoon, but we still had time to explore and walk around the French Quarter. Monday we explored NOLA by car,Tuesday we drove to Lafayette, and Wednesday we explored a bit more before heading back to

Back to the Boat - Boat yard Demopolis, AL

Sunset in the boatyard Travel day! We finally made back to the boat last week after spending over two months at home (with familly and friends).  The trip back started by getting to our local airport at 04:30 AM to catch the early bird flight to Toronto. That flight went without any issues, however things got a bit more complicated at the Toronto airport. Even though we had cleared security before our first flight (which was a Domestic flight), we had to go thru security again (International) before we got to clear customs and get to our gate to catch our 2nd flight.  (The US gov. is currently on "shutdown" and the whole process took a lot longer then usual...) We were very worried we would miss our connection, but we were lucky, we made it with a couple minutes to spare! But... you knew there had to be a "but" our flight was delayed... Waiting on the plane It seems our plane was late leaving Atlanta, thus... it delayed our flight.  We flew with Delta -
