On June 5-7th Stephen, Katie, Matthew and Allyson Brannon came to the boat for a weekend away from Athens. We took SEASEA out and anchored down at Guntersville Lock. Matthew drove most of the way.
The next day we locked down through Guntersville Lock and locked back up so they could experience going through a lock.
The Corps of Engineers requires that everyone be wearing a life jacket while locking so we all donned our PFD's for the lock through.
After our locking we traveled up to a new anchorage and spent some time exploring. We had been told about some "swimming pools" at the end of the creek so we dinghied up the creek to the rocks and then hiked a little ways to find the "pools". After we returned to the boat we were treated to a float plane performing "touch and go's" nearby.
The next day we headed back to the marina and Stacy backed SEASEA into her slip. On the way, we had some fun playing cards.
After cleaning up and helping our neighbor finish a project on his boat we headed back to Athens.
