Here we are anchored out with Ted and Nancy on "Aloha Friday" and Jack and Nan on "Eschaton" off the Tenn-Tom waterway. We will anchor out for 3 nights, moving down the river. Our next Marina stop will be Demopolis, Alabama, where we will have the boat pulled out of the water to do some maintenance work. The weather is progressively getting warmer, the days are hitting mid 70's, it is still dropping to high 30's at night.
U. S. Snagboat, MONTGOMERY was the last steam-powered stern wheeler to work the inland waterways of the South. She was retired in 1982, and restored, and is now on display at the Tom Bevill Visitor Center.
The Tom Bevill Visitor Center was built in 1985 and depicts the time period between 1830 - 1860 in a Greek revival home similar to those built in the Tombigbee River Valley. the following pictures are a couple taken in the parlor, and impressive entry way.
