Relaxing On The River, Dog River Marina, Mobile AL

Saturday, November 3, 2007 - Today will be a day to catch up with the boat chores. We got up early (7:00 AM) to wash the Island Hopper and to do laundry. Ed and Barb are flying home to Cincinnati this afternoon. Kevin took them to the airport around noon. We had a wonderful week with them and were fortunate enough to have great weather. They will be missed. Ed was a great deck boss and Barb gave him a run for the title.

Ater Kevin returned from the airport run he worked on the boat and chatted with other boaters. Another couple from MS on the dock bought a new Ocean Alexander from the same dealer the we did in St. Pete, FLA. Kevin toured the boat and they discussed their OAs. Again, the weather was sunny and in the high 70s. We decided to take the dingy to Mariner's Marina across the river for dinner. Instead of putting the motor on the dingy we rowed across the river. What a hoot! Tied the dingy to Pier Pressure ( the boat from MO) and went up to the restaurant. Had a drink at the bar with boaters we met earlier in the week. We had a good grouper dinner and then rowed back to the Island Hopper. Luckily there was no river traffic. Another great day on the river!
