This section is pretty and unremarkable at the same time. Kentucky Lake is fairly wide but a channel must be followed. The was formed by flooding behind the downriver dam. The channel is actually the old Tennessee River bed. We spent the first night in a quiet cove (Panther Bay) alone, no other boaters. It is a mystery to us how few boaters are willing to anchor out; rather they hop from marina to marina. The next stop was a marina, of course. We spent three nights at Pebble Isle waiting out bad weather. No town at all but we used the courtesy car to go to a hardware store and to get a haircut.
