AGLCA Rendezvous

Ron and I had not intended to participate in the America's Great Loop Cruisers' Association Rendezvous, but a number of boaters convinced us to attend. It was fabulous!

  There were 53 boats here and we met lots of interesting people from the US, Australia, Canada, and the UK.   We spent the most time with Ken and Ann from Sarasota, FL and Brian and Jean from the UK.


Ken and Ann, along with many others, were not on the loop yet, but were exploring the possibility of starting. The loopers were treated royally by Rogersville, the nearby town.  The shops were delightful!   One evening we attended an outdoor concert with a smores bar, massages, and a cigar bar.  It was held an a local bed and breakfast, so we got a tour of the home, too.  The singers were fantastic!
Last night, at the end of the Rendezvous, people who loved music got together to sing and play.  We had dulcimers, guitars, ukeles, and lots of fun.

Jenny Reves and I did laundry today...back to the domestic side of boating.  Since cold weather is expected, I'm making soup.

More than 20 boats headed out this morning (10/27) for the Tennessee-TomBigbee and on toward Mobile.

 Fourteen  boats (including us) are going instead to Chattanooga....we leave in the morning.  It will be about an 8-10 day trip and we will eventually return to the TomBigbee and head south, too.  If we arrive in Mobile Bay at the right time (Thanksgiving) all of the loopers have been invited to Thanksgiving dinner either at a marina or at the home of the harbor hosts.  This group is treated well!
