December 2, 2011


We were up early…and heading South. Didn’t have much luck with the current. It was against us for quite awhile.

We had wind behind us, giving us a bit of a shove, or we’d have been traveling even slower.

Both boats needed fresh water so we stopped at the city dock in Green Cove Springs. It is a nice floating dock. Water and electric are available. If you want to spend the night and hook up you walk up to the town hall. I believe they charge $10. That was the fee quoted in Active Captain.

Diane asked someone where there was a good restaurant and was directed to La Casita. They were right…it was good food at a reasonable price. (I’m beginning to sound like a restaurant tour guide.) There were a few other restaurants, a drug store and an Ace Hardware,  all within walking distance of the dock. We’ll be adding this stop to our list. Should be able to get most everything needed, except fuel.

After topping off our water tanks, we headed S. Another cold night expected. We continued on to Deep Creek.

Larry dropped his anchor, we rafted up to him and Jim hustled to get the dingy in the water. I didn’t get any pictures when we anchored here a few days ago ….and the sun was dropping behind the trees very fast.



After the photo session, Jim reloaded the dingy and we buttoned up for the night. We have fleece curtains to help insulate the vinyl curtains. I have covers for the cabin windows but we haven’t installed the snaps inside for the windows across the front…just on the side. Once we’ve done that it will help. I like to be able to look out and see if we are dragging anchor…but I can lift a curtain to do that.

Oh….did I mention it was COLD?!!


He is such a good sport…had a good time posing for these pictures….but it really was cold. Once I took this he opened up the engine compartment and it warmed up considerably.  He has Raisin wrapped up in the blanket.
