Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving - we sure did. Looks like a go for tomorrow (Saturday) to start our trek south to warmer temps. Awoke this morning to ice on the river and we know we need to get out of here so we don't get stuck here all winter, like last year. Next few days are predicted to be in the 50's so this may be our next chance.
I took this photo around 9:00 am Friday morning and a few boats passing thru had already broken up most of the ice.
We are still seeing about 10 to 15 boats heading south everyday, so hopefully we are not the last ones out.
Just some interesting traffic heading south. We saw him last year heading north - MV Sea Quest a Romsdal, what a beauty.
Some people have other ideas of how to spend their Black Friday - maybe he did his shopping on Brown Thursday - I'm thinking not.
We stayed clear of all the shopping areas except Walgreens for some batteries. We have fueled 550 gallons @ $3.45 for diesel. We bought groceries and wine - $600.00. Some parts and pieces needed $300.00. We think we are ready to go - it is what it is. Again, it may happen and it may not - it is boating.
