We had our breakfast and spent some time in the water before pulling anchor at 11 am and heading upriver towards Chattanooga. It was already 88 degrees and on its way to the century mark. The cruise was a leisurely one – stopping along the way two or three times to jump in the water and cool down.
At 3 pm, we were back at the dock and ready to plug into shore power. Everyone had a nice shower on the boat, changed into clean clothes and enjoyed the air conditioning. Dan and Julie gave us a call late in the afternoon and said we should expect them around 6 pm. When they arrived, we walked uptown to a Mexican restaurant where we enjoyed a nice meal, heard about the wonderful few days they spent up in the mountains near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and told them about our own experiences since we left them at Mammoth Cave on Saturday.
