We left Green Turtle Bay Friday morning and have been cruising down the BEAUTIFUL Tennessee River the last couple of days with stops at Pebble Isle Marina in Johnsonville, TN and Clifton, TN. Both days have been about 65 mile runs. The scenery has been extraordinary and other than fisherman (a lot), a few small barges and Looper boats we’ve had the river to ourselves.
We arrived in Clifton, TN yesterday afternoon and did our "gotta get off the boat" walk. We checked out downtown Clifton. Not a good surface to walk if you have sea-legs!
I told the captain last week that we WERE NOT going to travel on Sundays when the Vikings are playing. Tom bleeds purple and looks forward to Funday Sundays and the Sundays that we have traveled the last few weeks have been a harried, no, a CRAZY race to the next port. With that said, we were woke up this morning (7 am) from a call from Sam, one of the other Viking fanatics in my family. He had tickets to the game and was just calling his dad for a little pre-game. So we got up and made a little game day breakfast on the boat.....
A little while later we received this from Sam and his buddy Alex Kurth on their way to the game. GO VIKES!!!
