Bobby's Fish Camp, AL and the Early Worm gets Eaten First!

Bashi Creek was a fantastic anchorage.  A quiet little creek that is deep and basically no current.  We slept with the windows open and a mostly full moon shined down through our hatchway screen with the owl's conversations filling our berth all night.  Several tugs passed along the river channel during the night almost silent until the business end passed.  We had our bow anchor deployed and I tied a line to a bush to keep the stern tucked in.  The 5:00 AM alarm went off and we started our getting ready to go ritual which always starts with making coffee.  Once the sky lightens enough to see we start the engine and turn on running lights, bow thruster, radios, radar and depth sounder.  The chartplotter comes to life with today's cruise plan laid in, anchor comes up and away we go to Bobby's Fish Camp.

That's the news and here's the views:

We are here

Stuff on the Wall

Bobby's is First Come - First Serve.. Except

 Except when two boats over 60 ft long come in... so out we went to anchor.  So much for the Early Bird Thing

Since we payed no slip fee the catfish went down even better!
These are the crew of Moni-Jean the couple from Kentucky we have been traveling with

This is what the dock looks like after we were booted off from our anchorage.  Boats rafted 4 deep out and 2 deep along the pier

Who wouldn't want to be on the hook on a night like this?
