Onward to Pickwick Lake

Green Turtle Bay was a great place.  There was at least 40 looper boats there.  Everyone was staying for at least a week but we decided to spend our week in Pickwick Lake where three states meet, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama.  We left Green Turtle on Thursday the 25th of Sept. and headed South on the Tennessee River / Kentucky Lake to our first destination of Pebble Isle Marina in the town of in New Johnsonville TN.  We spent the night and were off in the morning for Clifton City Marina in Clifton, TN.  Still on a mission to get to Pickwick we left again early in the morning and headed to our final destination of Aqua Yacht Harbor on Pickwick Lake in Mississippi.  On the last five miles we had to lock through the Pickwick Landing Lock before entering the lake.  I must say the Tennessee River is beautiful.  After traveling almost 200 miles in three days we were glad to finally arrive and know we had over a week to relax and get some boat stuff done.  The Aqua Yacht Harbor has cable TV, Wifi, Pool, two courtesy vans to use anytime and a great view of the lake.  I know we're going to enjoy every minute.
