Our first stop after leaving Joe Wheeler was to return to McKernan Creek. We had barely gotten our anchor in the water when we were welcomed over the radio. Then just a few minutes later Pride Tompkins showed up to welcome us and invite us over to his house for a glass of wine. Last time we had stopped here we met a man named Cameron and Pride is Cameron’s friend who we did not get a chance to meet last time. We had a lovely visit at his and his wife, Kay’s beautiful home. We invited them to join us in the morning on our boat for a tour and coffee cake.
