June 1, 2009---What a realization! This is a new month already. We pulled anchor and left Panther Creek at 10:45 a.m. A beautiful day to travel and not being in a hurry we ran about 8.5 MPH. It took 5 hours to reach Florence, Al. Having gone from mile marker 218.7 to the marina at 256.2 a distance of 37.5 miles was covered.
Large homes were clinging to the cliff tops.
The Florence Marina Harbor is located immediately downstream of the Highway 72 bridge that joins Muscle Shoals and Florence. The flags waved at the entrance to the marina.
