October 5, 2012 Clifton
Clifton October 4 to October 6
We had a wonderful and relaxing time at the Cliftom marina. The owner Gene and staff were very nice and hospitable. On the evening of the 4th we were met at the dock by Cindy a dockhand and Sally from m/v "Elegant Lady", both helped us to dock our Proud Lady. We had a little trouble with steering as we tried to enter the harbor but Bill was awesome in getting her to the dock in spite of the problem. When Bill traced the problem with steering he found the fluid low on the port transmission. He added the needed fluid and she (Proud Lady) is steering beautifully. No leaks were found during his operational inspection. On the 5th after seeing Elegant lady and The Zone off we moved to another slip to spend our second night here at Clifton.
Before walking into Clifton Bill and I did laundry and cleaning.
A 10 min. walk into Clifton was good. Clifton is a historical town, old homes, historic sidewalk, craft shops and restraunts. Here is a picture of downtown.
Here is one of the historic sidewalk.
Here is the historical Presbyterian Church with a sign about its history in the civil war. (to Brent)
By 330pm we were very tired, we ate salad and chicken strips, went back to the boat to rest. Another fine day on the water.
On October 6 we will leave Clifton and head south on the Tennessee river.
