SALT LICK CROSSES HER WAKE==== THIS PARTY IS OVER!

TUESDAY     APRIL 25, 2017         12:12PM  SALT LICK CROSSES HER WAKE AND THE GREAT LOOP JOURNEY IS COMPLETED!

At 11;40 AM we  cruised into Calibogue Sound with the Harbour Town lighthouse in the distant view.   I tossed out the last “message in a bottle” for niece Meghan and her husband Justin on an outgoing tide.    Before we knew it we were at the point where our trip had begun a year ago on April 27, 2016.   We put Salt Lick at idle speed, took photos, popped the champagne and changed our white AGLCA  (America’s Great Loop Cruising Association) burgee for the GOLD burgee,  indicating we had completed the Loop!
