10/23/08---Since Keith and Maryann are in Memphis I spent some time just looking around the marina. Someone has certainly made an effort to welcome visitors with the fall colors. Halloween must be coming as pumkins are on display. The sky was overcast and it rained all afternoon and into the night. Standing near the Dockers Grill and looking down a boat ramp that leads out toward Barkley lake our boat can just be seen in a slip on the right. Feeling brave I had charged up Keith's 12 volt scooter. We have been carrying it all this time and seldom does it get used. There is always the question of "will the battery go dead before getting back?" Anyway, I road the short distance across the little town of Grand River and looked at Kentucky Lake where the white lighthouse is located and the marina that hosts only sail boats. I did not have to push much as the battery nearly lasted and I got back to the boat before the rain increased.
