People started moving in Cartersville a little slow this morning. The sky was overcast and it was a little cool. Gradually everyone was up and gathered on the bank of the boat ramp for a group photo. First, Chairman Smith gave out the perseverance award to The Debbie. Then the Dewey Pole was awarded this year to Randy Waycaster from the batteau Slate River.

Then the Ladies had prepared a song about Dewey Wood. Copies of the words were handed out and then they began singing and playing a guitar. I tried to sing at first but I couldn’t do it. I kept looking around hoping no one would notice my eyes as I got a little emotional thinking back about Dewey while hearing this song being sung by all the batteau group. That was very nice to hear.

Gradually the boats pulled off and went towards Maiden’s Landing.

Bo from the Rockfish Runner complained about a bad foot this am. He wasn’t worried though as this was the last day and he’s going to be fine he said.

See you at Maiden’s, and thank you to the Goochland Public Library for the awesome room overlooking woods and a field as I type in today’s blog posting.
