Day 33 Thus Sept 12

Continued on up Kentucky Lake, staying primarily in the buoyed secondary channel on the west side of the lake. stopped at the KenLake state Park marina fpr a few minutes.

By early afternoon the wind had picked up somewhat, but not bad as it was a tailwind and we were going with the waves, but about 2:00 PM, it got real hazy and looked like some storm clounds on the horizon so we pulled into a bay oef the Blood River and Sugar Creek and found a small bay for the night. We are nchored in a bay on the west side of the lake, Blood River Bay and the Sugar Creek arm, right across from the Sugar Creek Marina. This is still Kentucky, but Tennesse is just across the lake on the east side.
Of course, as soon as we got anchored in the sheltered bay, the clouds went over and sun shined rest of
afternoon. was no internet connection at our anchorage point. got a short post in with cell phone but that was all.

Stan went ahead and baked a cake and some cupcakes on the protable grill and then cooked scrambled eggs and ham for supper,  cupcakes for dessert.   About 8:00 PM, we had our showers taken, the curtains down and were getting ready for bed when a small shower struck, we had neglected to tie one curtain down and the wind picked it up and blew it up over the roof just as the rain hit. we scrambled to get it back in place. It was a good shower that rained pretty heavy for 4-5 minutes and then it was over.

The lake is interesting as the bottom contours change very quickly, it can be 25 feet deep and then 5 feet
in just a few yards. We have been staying in a secondary channel that is marked with smaller red and green buoys.

A lot of hazxe over the lake in the afternoon. and sky looks like it might become stromy
