Howardsville came to life as the sun rose and gradually some of the boats started to leave but no one was in any kind of a hurry.
Dr. Bill Trout stood on the bank with Diane Easley and we talked about her Dad, Howard Williams, who died not too long ago.
Chris onboard the Rivertime was doing a lot of bailing a while but was getting the boat in good shape.
It was good to see the Anthony Rucker as they departed looking very good for the photos.
