Early mornings and short days

Miss Pip at Bay Springs with the fall colors of Bay Springs as a backdrop. (Just had to throw that one in. Thanks for the Wickles.)
This time of year there is a large group of folks traveling down the waterway called "Loopers"
They are doing the Great Loop which is mostly inland waterways from Canada to Florida. It usually takes at least a year and is quite an undertaking.
There was a large gathering of "Loopers" on the Tennessee River at Joe Wheeler State Park( A Rendezvous) which is why there is such a congestion of them going down the Tenn-Tom.
Now their plans take them to Florida and warmth before heading back up the east coast to wherever they started.

The Waterway is behind us now. The question on our minds is where will we go next??

Today we are in Orange Beach, Alabama at the Wharf Marina. Nice place and nice folks who run it. We spent a lot of time here last year so it seems like coming home.
Rob, Jason, and Beverly made sure we got the slip we wanted and were waiting for us when we arrived.

More later...
