Upon arrival at the little town dock we filled out our ballots and googled the local post office. Tummies rumbling a bit, we headed out to do the mail thing and get some food. As we left the dock we were approached by the driver of the tour bus, which was about to leave in 15 minutes. We took the "what would John and Martha do" option, and boarded the bus for a 1 hour drive around town.
|Lovely little historic dock. Back in the day
this bustled with trade of cotton and peanuts.
It was bigger then, though.
Sad news, however. Just 6 days ago we went through the Deep Creek Lock. I wrote about the lockmaster there, Robert, who's been the lockmaster for 25 years. He passed away yesterday. We're both floored -- when we saw him is was chipper and happy. He even mentioned, after seeing our AGLCA burgee, that his wife wanted to do the Great Loop, and he was trying to figure out how he could take a year off from his job. Our deepest sympathies go to his family. Deep Creek Lock will never be the same.
