St Johns River

DeBary, FL.

59 deg. overcast, E. wind @ 5 mph.

Forecast = Partly cloudy with rain showers in the afternoon. High of 79F. Winds from the NE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 20%.

Since I really don't have much to write about, I thought I'd post some photos of the St. Johns River that Jim has taken over the last few days. The River runs right along side of the Highbanks Marina and Campresort and is accessible from a few different spots in the park.

These first two are taken from a small "public" area between the sites that are located on the river. The first one is the view looking South.

The view looking North.

Highbanks Road dead ends at the River at the South edge of the park, and if you follow it all the way to the river instead of turning into the park, you come to the boat launch and the marina.

Looking off to the right from the road, you'll see all the boats parked at the Marina

The next 2 photos are taken from the boat launch area. The first one is the view looking North,

and this one, the view looking South.

From the Marina, you can rent a pontoon boat or you can take a guided tour of the River. Jim and Linda have never done either one because it's pretty expensive, but I hear that the river is quite scenic.

Linda has been busy, busy, busy!!! She's pretty much finished with the sewing and embroidery part of getting the presents ready and has now been busy wrapping  them. Soon they'll all be ready to be boxed up and sent to family.  : )

Jim has just been trying to stay our of her way and to help out whenever he can. Today, he's planning on going to the Post Office to pick up some of those Priority boxes, ("If it fits it ships"), and then he and Linda will start packing the presents into them.

I'll be glad when they're finally shipped. Right now, I have presents stacked everywhere inside of me!!!

Did you know that the St. Johns River  is the longest river in Florida?  It's 310 miles long and is one of the few rivers in the United States that runs from the South to the North.

  1. I just love being near the water! A little cool for a swim but a boat ride sounds nice.
