By Bob, and yes, it's another cloudless, very warm day
We've landed in paradise. After successfully passing the Illinois, Mississippi, Ohio and now the Tennessee Rivers unscathed, the lakes of Kentucky are a truly welcomed relief. No more locks for a while.

Here's Alice fending LB

We arrived at GTB around 1300 having left Paducah by 0730, it was only 27 kms against a 1kt current and the infamous Kentucky Lock. Most of the other boaters took the Cumberland River route to avoid the Kentucky Lock due to the possibility of 3 - 4 hour delays. Well, we are Lucky Bird and we went in and up and were on our way in less than an hour, Yup, lucky LB did it again.

We also lucked out in that the local yacht club was having an all you can eat Crab Legs, Shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn cookout. Here are a couple of shots of the LB crew taking advantage of local hospitality.

The Captain dives in.

Getting full, we used scissors to dig out the crab meat

Alice and I have spent considerable time together on the water; cruising and racing on the waters of New England, the Caribbean and Lake Michigan.

Sailing is our passion and together we've been fortunate to experience the thrills, the camaraderie and the enjoyment boating provides. [...]

We seek the freedom, excitement and challenges of voyaging.

This is our second journey south to the Caribbean. This time we've chosen to exit Lake Michigan and proceed south through the in-land waterway system to Mobile. We'll start around Labor Day and take our time exploring the history of middle America.
