Fare Thee Well Green Turtle Bay

October 12, 2016


Shoved off at 8:30 this morning headed south running upstream on the Tennessee River in a stiff 15 mile per hour headwind. About 90 minutes in we gave up and returned to GTB. 4-foot swales coming over the bow made us slow to a crawl and would put us at Paris Landing (40 miles)  later  than we wanted. It wasn’t dangerous, just exhausting. Don loved it. I was’t afraid, but I didn’t want to be falling down every step for 8 hours.

Coming back WITH the wind and current
