Ahhh, we’ve now spent three weeks relaxing from the heat and busyness of the rivers in Kentucky’s Land Between the Lakes. With 2400 miles of shoreline, this giant body of water is the largest manmade lake in the eastern US. We docked in marinas, anchored in quiet coves, and visited with friends and family.
Dealing with enormous 4k drone video files on a low end laptop brings back technical nightmare memories from the office. Gah!! For now, I’ve given up splicing them together with cool transitions and will just have to do stills and short clips. Craig did a great job capturing the foggy mornings…
If you are ever near Grand Rivers (outside Paducah), you MUST see a show at the Badgett Playhouse. We’ve never seen such huge talent in such an itty-bitty town! We were dazzled by the music of The Sounds of Memphis and charmed by The Southern Gospel Show. It’s worth a drive in a boat or car to immerse yourself in an amazing concert. One of the members even played with Elvis Presley. And all of them, wonderful, hometown folk, good people. You leave uplifted 😁
At Green Turtle Bay Marina we had a great visit with Craig’s brother Gary and our sister-in-law Linda. They flew down from Chicago for Craig’s 60th birthday. Doesn’t look that ancient, does he? That week I also turned 57. Yikes.
Plus my college friend Deb and her husband Dave drove down to Paris, TN from Indianapolis to spend a few days on Joy Girl. So wonderful to see my college buddy!
We were just about to head south out of Kentucky Lake into the Tennessee River when our black and white kitty, Roswell, got sick. The vet determined he has a kidney infection – hopefully an acute problem. Right now, he’s spending a few days in the hospital, receiving IV fluids and antibiotics. Once he is recovered, we plan to continue our trip south, heading to Mobile Bay, AL.
