Goose Pond Colony will be our home for a while. Located on Guntersville Lake on the Tennessee River, this is one of the nicest spots on the river.
We spotted this large alligator on the banks of the Tombigbee Waterway as we cruised northward. He was enjoying the beautiful sunny day too!
Wild pigs along the bank just south of Demopolis – this was a first for us
Just north of Demopolis we were ringside to a heron and egret rookery. There were about 100 birds in the process of building nests and producing the next generation.
We have shared pictures of the white cliffs of Eppes before. What made this picture so special was the perfect lighting as we passed this fine spring day. The white was a wonderful contrast to the fresh bright green of the trees you only see in early springtime.
Although the flowering plants were not extremely visible – their aroma was everywhere – it filled the air for the entire 2 week cruise to the Tennessee River. One of the advantages of cruising north in the springtime is the extension of the wonderful aromas and sights of the flowering plants.
Ospreys were extremely visible and numerous as we traveled northward. Sometimes every day-board had an active nest like this along the Tombigbee Waterway.
Beautiful weather and a weekend makes for a rafting party for 34 boats downstream of Huntsville
We experienced dense fog on our last morning as we cruised into Goose Pond. Fortunately the fog lifted in time for this great view!
