COLUMBUS-STAY

Oct. 13, 2009---Heavy rain still in the forecast for Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama. This means TomBigBee Waterway will continue to rise and the amount of debris steadily increase. Lots of broken trees can be seen floating past the marina at a rate of 5 to 6 mph. It is time to reduce the risk of damaging props. Therefore we are going to keep the boat in the Columbus Marina for about one month. Blog may not be updated very often while we travel by land.






Seems each marina has a flock of canadian geese living nearby.
Perhaps they find plenty to eat and have lost the desire to fly south for the winter.




In the recreation area near the marina a monument pays tribute to two men who were instrumental in making the TomBigBee Waterway possible.
















There a lots of boats in the marina.













Video shows water flow at the dam.

The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway is an alternate route to the Gulf of Mexico. The waterway is stimulating economic development, providing outdoor recreational opportunities, aiding navigation, and enhancing wildlife habitat.
