The traveling troops were off to an early start this morning with Tally Ho leading the mass exodus. I think eight of them left and locked down together. The faster boats will be trying to make it the 118 miles to Demopolis while others will be anchoring along the way.

LOCK DOWN THE NEARLY ADJACIENT STENNIS LOCK
By 10:30 it was raining “cats and dogs”. Guess they should just call us to do windows when ever rain is needed.

We lucked out and someone canceled their request for the courtesy car and we acquired one hour of its use to make a fast trip to the marked to provision for our next few days with guests. We were a vision of efficiency as we zipped through the Krogers, filling our basket with necessary items.
Richard and Barbara arrived at the marina by 3:30 and dodged the raindrops as they made their way aboard the Quest. The drops abated and we waded over to the transient dock to find out who might be leaving in the morning. Feeling confident that our plans were coordinated, Richard and Barbara found their way to the darling little Golden Triangle Regional Airport where they dropped off their rental car and we picked them up. We had a great dinner at Hucks in downtown Columbus then drove around a bit, taking in the sights and finding some of the big old homes.
