October 10, 2012  Day 152   Green Turtle Bay       Total miles to date:  3100.33

Ashley and Nathan left this morning to go back to Mom and Dad and their brothers.  We took them to Nashville where they flew to Dallas and then on to Killeen, TX.  We all enjoyed a week full of activities that were both fun and educational.  We are so happy they could be here with us!!  Their enthusiasm was contagious!

After their plane left we went to lunch at Panera (conveniently located next door to West Marine and of course we had to stop there also. In fact, we had to go down every aisle!) From there we went to Walmart to buy non-perishable items since we still had a 2 ½ hour drive to get to Paducah to return the rental car.

When we returned to the marina, we discovered a huge exodus of Loopers occurred while we were out today! There are a few boats still here but also many empty spaces! Our plans are to stay here until Friday and doing major cleaning!! 

We did make a decision today!  We are going to attend the Looper Rendezvous at Joe Wheeler after all. We were happy we could still get a reservation! We are on a wait list for the marina but will anchor out in the lake if needed.

This is just a short post tonight but we are a little tired from the early and long day, and we think the adrenaline we had while the grandchildren were here is fading!
