Crossing our Wake!!!!!!!

The day after we arrived in Mobile our good friends Mike and Debbie flew into New Orleans, rented a car and came to spend some time with us on the boat including crossing our wake.  The plan was to stay here in Mobile until the 14th and head down to South Mobile Bay and turn left back into the ICW and stop at Lu-Lu's for Jan's birthday party and crossing our wake.  However, the weather had another idea so we were forced to leave early.  We left on the 12th of Nov. and had a great ride through the bay.  We decided to go to "The Wharf" and then take the boat to Lu-Lu's on the 14th.   The Wharf is only about 3 miles past Lu-Lu's.  We crossed our wake at channel marker 124 heading into the ICW.  This is where we intersect when we crossed through Mobile Bay last January and coming down the bay from the North at Mobile.  We finished our adventure of America's Great Loop.  We had many emotions as we finished what started from our home port of Lodi, CA in August of last year, taking Panacea down the Pacific Coast to San Diego, loading her on a truck to Seabrook, TX and starting the journey of our life.  Our next blog will be a summary of our adventure with some stats and some of our favorite memories.

This is the iPad with Blue Charts showing the brown line as our route and the boat is Panacea.  The brown circle is where we cross our wake and complete our Great Loop

This is the waypoint on my chartplotter, okay, I'm a little off coarse, but hey, we had 7 feet of water!
We did it!

Mike and Debbie celebrating with us.
Chloe is just happy it's over!
One happy Panacea
Thank you Endeavor (John), Twelve Stones (Elaine and Russ), Attitude Changer (Barb and Ross), Prime Interest (Lester and Irene), Nearly Perfect (Jack and Patty), Mike and Debbie for celebrating our accomplishment and Jan's Birthday.

Happy Birthday Baby.....
Opps!
