Old Hickory Lake Cruise to Sandy Chapel
For our fall on-water event, the Old Hickory Lake cruise on Saturday 22 September was hosted by Linda and Fred Burr, aboard Spar-Kee out of the Gallatin Marina. Four families participated, including Edie and Marshall Oathout; Rebecca, Jared and Mike Majka; Lili, McLean and Tom Hudson; the Burrs and their niece Tiffany. Though the temperature was above normal for September, the skies were mostly clear, with a pleasant light breeze.
 
Departing about 1120, Spar-Kee led the way upriver past Cherokee Resort and TVA's Gallatin steam plant, with Mike's jet ski in tow, followed by the Oathouts aboard Persephone. Fred led the way through the narrow passage to Sandy Chapel, a beautiful spring-fed cove, where he anchored and Persephone rafted-up.
 
After a lunch with plenteous eats of great variety, Mike took Tiffany and McLean each for fast rides on the jet ski. Departing Sandy Chapel about 1600, we made our way back to Gallatin Marina aboard Spar-Kee, while Persephone continued back to her berth at Cedar Creek Yacht Club. From Gallatin, the Hudsons then boarded Gratitude for their return to Creekwood, and Mike loaded the jet ski on its trailer.
