So yesterday I wrote my blog, went to save it and nothing happened!!!! It was so dissaponting after spending time updating! Anyway I will do some DEJA VU! LOL, VUJA DE translates to I’ve never done this!!!😅😅😅
So yesterday was a three lock day!!! The biggest was we have ventured us up 94 feet, this was a little 84 feet down! We look like itty bitty tiny boats at the bottom!
We are traveling with a floatilla of boats, we started off with nine or ten, we ended up with eleven by the second lock! Here is some of the flotilla!
By the second and third lock other boats had joined so we tied up to another boat so other boats could fit in the lock, but yesterday, before we got in the lock, sometimes we had to wait for barge traffic, so Tom dropped anchor and we tied up to him, here we are to wait!!?
Now to today!!!! It was another morning too early to get up and go…which is fine because I went to bed early, thank goodness and God, because Skip’s friend Tom got out of the lock this morning and gave his boat the gas that almost put us in the Swamp! I do not have any pictures of the horrible mess he left behind!!!! EVERY thing, in the cabin was on the floor including pots and pans out of the cabinet!!!
I was beyond angry because some people do not think about situational awareness, and how you actions effect others?? I think I am now over it or am really trying hard to be!!!
Then, just after that lock, and the Tom incident, the Captain of the boat named Dixie was just ahead of us, he was kind, courteous, and hailed out every deadhead, deer swimming over the river, and a six foot rattlesnake crossing by! I do believe there are great kind hearted people in the world! He restored my confidence in human civility!!!
The coolest thing he called out was this six foot rattlesnake crossing!!!?
I do belive the moral of the story here is to consider others, have a good heart, do always to help others, do not always look forward to where you are going to and never forget what is behind, like a BIG wake!!!
