10/29/08---Left Green Turtle Bay at 7:30 a.m. Went through the adjoining canal and into the Tennesse River at 8:00 a.m. The sun shine caused the water to sparkle on Kentucky Lake as we headed south. The rolling hills along the waterway appear dressed in their best as the trees are really starting to show fall colors. The view is breathtaking. A very pleasant ride up the Tennesse River, yes up river, as the river flows north to the Ohio.

There were several large flocks of White Pelicans along the way. Some kind of black ducks were so plentiful in one area it looked like a long, narrow, black, island. A blue heron helped mark the way as it was well positioned on a green can. Several small boats along the river were waving diver down flags. Apparently they are exploring under water structures that have long since been covered by the man made lake. Kentucky Lake is 184 miles long controlled by the Kentucky Lock on the north end and the Pickwick Landing Lock on the south end.

We passed a bridge to no where standing in the water. Has Palin been here or is that an old railroad bridge that has been partially torn down? Arrived at Pebble Isle Marina at 2:30 p.m. The blog master did a little writing as we traveled. Covered 71 miles today in 7 hrs. Avg 10 MPH. A late lunch at the local restuarant was completed with a large cookie covered with a small amount of ice cream!
