Jacksonville, FL

We've finally arrived in Jacksonville, FL!  We traveled 94 miles today for a total of 1,103 miles in 21 days from Atlantic City, NJ to Jacksonville, FL.  We're washing and cleaning the boat and offloading our stuff the next couple days and leaving Say Good-Bye in Jacksonville in a covered slip for hurricane season.

We were met by our friends, Ken and Darla  and their little pup, Molly, on "Mosey" who helped us tie up. It's been a long day and the next two days will be work days for us.
Here are a few photos of today's travels:

The red boat shape is our boat -- the red line is our route

Lots of tugs and commercial ships

A tug and a barge

Ken (seated) met us and introduced us to his dock friends

Ken's friend's shirt reads:  "Detroit where the weak are killed and eaten..."  he and his wife grew up in Detroit.  The shirt made me laugh.
