Up the Cumberland River towards Nashville


Our stay at Green Turtle Bay Resort on Lake Barkley, KY for 7 Nights was very nice and relaxing.  The weather was around 90 degrees and sunny for most days. This is a place that many loopers stop in and some stay for as long as one month. We saw many loopers come and go and some were heading south into Kentucky lake towards the Tennessee river and some up the Cumberland towards Nashville.  Those going south might go to Joe Wheeler State park for the yearly Looper Rendezvous or up to Chattanooga before heading to Mobile AL. On Tuesday the 25th, we left for Clarksville, TN up the Cumberland river for a 90 mile run.  Val’s Birthday is today and the weather is cloudy with a good chance of rain.  Yuk, boring. This is a nice marina, but we might not stay here for 6 days as scheduled as this town is not that exciting and there is only a couple things close to this marina.  



This is how we communicate with Tows and Barges on the river.





One whistle, two whistle pass.

Tom and Connie from rPad are from Oscoda, MI and they completed their loop here at Green Turtle Bay.
