The people you meet cruising

28 October 2014 | Island Harbor Marina, Pine Bluff, Arkansas
When we cruised Seanna, we met the most wonderful people. This cruise has already proven to be the same. When we got to Island Harbor, the first couple we met were Rick & Carol Hayes. They were imeadeately welcoming, and helpful. Rick took my homemade bracket for the generator to his shop and made an adjustment for me. Carol took the girls out to buy a few things they needed, and yesterday, she loaned us her car so the girls could go to the laundromat.

Yesterday morning, a 46' ChrisCraft came into the marina. Aboard were Mike and Cyndie Dyer. They just bought the boat in Little Rock, and are taking it to Nashville. They came aboard Robyn's Nest last night for cocktails, and to compare charts and experiences. They are a very nice couple that plan to start the loop this summer. We look forward to bumping into them again on the loop.

Then there is Jim. Jim is the owner of Island Harbor Marina. He has been extremely accommodating.he has taken me to town several times for parts and repairs. I guess Jim took over Island Harbor last spring in a very dilapidated condition. He has applied for a grant to bring the marina up to the standard we all expect and appreciate. I sure hope he can save the marina. This is the last marina on the Arkansas River, before you hit the Mississippi. I believe this marina is very nessacary for the pleasure boating on this section of the Arkansas.

We will never be able to thank Jim, Rick, or Carol enough for the hospitality that we have been shown here. We also wish Mike and Cyndie the absolute best luck on their trip to Nashville.

Until next time...

Married since 2007. It has been Lester's dream to cruise in a sailboat for over 20 years. After a cruise in 2012, and learning about the "Great Loop", we sold our sailboat and bought a trawler for a different kind of cruising. [...]
