29° 59.33' N 81° 39.68' W 23 Mar 2020 22:16 None None None Reynolds at Green Cove Springs-Meriwether’s summer slumber spot. A current driven ride up the St John River. Uneventful passage thru the heart of Jacksonville. A bit melancholy, however a gentle transition to terra-firma until she is hauled. Closing our journey for now-Until(we hope) next year!❤️
30° 23.89' N 81° 27.46' W 21 Mar 2020 20:21 None None None How do I describe today??? First decision: ICW or Ocean? Figuring the currents and tides in rivers and inlets. We decided ICW. Good decisions- we made great time! However, it is the first weekend of spring in Florida. And most of the beaches are closed! Unprecedented traffic!! Every watercraft you can think of is out on the rivers. Yikes!!! Sisters creek- Jacksonville. We made it. Got the last space on the free dock and TWO other cruisers we have met in our journeys are here. We made it! AND we are keeping social distancing but enjoying catching up:) Stay safe and healthy everyone!
29° 53.74' N 81° 18.55' W 17 Mar 2020 23:28 None None None Happy St Patrick’s Day! St Augustine is still bustling-even with all the bars closed. Love the bridge of lions! We will stay away from the crowds:). We can sit on the boat and watch the bridge and city light up at night:). The sunsets are pretty special too. We can walk the beach here and provision again. Stay safe and healthy everyone!
29° 11.56' N 80° 59.95' W 16 Mar 2020 22:41 None None None Daytona. Yes the chart is correct! We are just off the ICW. However, no traffic tonight. Not sure if it’s because it is Monday night or the VIRUS. Feels a little weird, but we are good. Early morning!
28° 37.43' N 80° 48.25' W 15 Mar 2020 20:28 None None None Back in Titusville! We’ve been instructed by our children to stay on the boat and away from people! To ‘flatten the curve’. We are being obedient:). We have provisioned, and are enjoying being on the boat. All is well!
