November 13, 2012    Day 186                             

Turner Marine, Mobile, AL
Total miles to date:  3855.3

We spent today in port as planned and got more boat chores done. We also worked on planning our route as we will start heading toward the Florida panhandle. There are many places to stop along the way. We will leave Mobile tomorrow morning and go to Orange Beach, AL – again there are several marinas from which to choose.  The winds are forecast at a moderate chop all week, but we really have no choice but to leave and keep on our schedule for Thanksgiving plans.

We had a nice visit from Bill’s brother Chuck and our sister-in-law, Becky, this afternoon.  They were driving back home to Baton Rouge from a weekend in Destin, FL and we were right on the way. We went out to lunch and then made a well appreciated stop at Walmart.  Chuck and Becky traveled with us from Traverse City to Chicago and it was good to see them again!

We had pizza for dinner and just relaxed this evening.  Tomorrow is a travel day!
