"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

Demopolis Yacht Basin

Ida is on her way according to all reports.  We are about 200 miles from the gulf in Demopolis Yacht Basin, waiting out the storm before we head any further south.  While we are here, we have decided to have the boat pulled from the water to do some maintenance work and add a macerator pump, which we will need in the Bahamas.  So we are living on the boat on land, for a day or so, which during a storm is allot less rocky than being in the turbulent water.

Here are some pictures of the boat being hauled out, and a picture of some deer in the Tenn-Tom waterway

The last picture is of Jim & I with 2 other couples also doing the loop We are on Ted & Nancy's boat "Aloha Friday".  Bobbie, this is the only picture I have so far, I am always the picture taker. :)

You guys look great! Hope you didn't get hit too hard from Ida.
How long is the boat going to out for maintenance? Called on Dan this afteroon. Told him if he needed anything to call me. I'll check on him again when he gets home. Love you both.
