I didn't get these two photos uploaded yesterday, so I thought I'd include them in this post.
The Nina at Guntersville, AL, October 12, 2010
The Pinta at Guntersville, AL, October 12, 2010
And now the ladies leave Guntersville for Chattanooga, TN. Although they make use of wind and sail as much as possible, they are equipped with inboard motors in order to adhere to schedules and navigate rivers a bit more efficiently. They had been in Florence, AL before heading to Huntsville and Guntersville. Had I thought about it, I would have gone over to Guntersville Dam to watch them go through the locks. It would have given an opportunity for some interesting photos. I had hoped to get to Guntersville in time to watch them leave, hoping that they would get away under sail. However, I was late leaving Huntsville and was only able to watch them fade into the distance.
