Great Loop Route

We left Sneads Ferry, NC on May 10th and proceeded North on the ICW beginning our great loop trip. We travelled a total of 6,200+ miles, went through 130 locks, 17 states and, of course, spent the majority of the summer in Canada with its great cruising and crystal clear waters. We managed to do 4 side trips: 1) the St. Lawrence Seaway to the Boldt Castle just past Alexandria Bay, NY; 2) Up the Tennessee River to Chattanooga and back down to Rogersville Alabama; 3) St. Johns River to Blue Springs; and 4) up the Savannah River to the city of Savannah. We also did numerous side trips via rental cars such as Shiloh National Cemetery; the Everglades National Park, Merritt Island National Refuge; Sanibel and Captiva Islands; and the Kennedy Space Center just to name a few. We had family and friends on board 7 times for a taste of boat living and cruising fun (and work!!). Our favorite cruising was in Canada, the Tennessee River, and Florida for its friendly and scenic waterways. After 11 months, Magoo and crew arrived in Sneads Ferry crossing our wake on April 9, 2011. Well, time to get our land legs back!! We will always remember the great folks that we met along the way and the help and support that we gave each other. — Not to forget our children (Kyle and Cassie, and our lovely daughter-in-law Steph) for having watched over the home front freeing us to concentrate on this year long trip. We are so blessed to have such giving and loving children and grandchild; they make our hearts soar.
