Aqua Yacht Harbor is the home port of Joe & Tammy, a couple we met at the Fall Looper Rendezvous in 2014 and they followed our blog for the remainder of our trip. Joe and Tammy are planning to do the loop in the future. They were instrumental in finding us a slip near theirs to leave the PV2 while we return home for a couple months. It was great to see them again and catch up.
Our friends Paul & Cindy from back home, drove down with their motorhome to meet us and bring us back home. Friday night we cooked out at their campsite at Pickwick State Park. On Saturday, they joined us for a boat ride to the Waterfall cove. This was one of our favorite anchorages on our 1st loop. It was fun to share this with them!
Sunday morning we closed up the boat, boarded the motorhome, and hit the road. We were sure glad we were in a motorhome vs a boat as it was a rainy, windy day. (remnants of Hurricane Nate) This was the first rain we saw on the entire trip! We stopped at a campground just outside of Nashville for the evening. Instead of our normal dinghy ride after arriving at our destination, we jumped in their Jeep (that they tow behind the motorhome) and headed into Nashville for food, music and fun.
We had a smooth relaxing ride back to Grandville and arrived home by 5pm on Monday. We plan to return to the boat in December and continue moving her south.
