Settled in

Well, we are in Jacksonville as planned. The Marina At Ortega Landing is probably one of the best marinas we've ever stayed at.
Today was another shuffling of vehicles. We drove the truck and trailer down to our destination, Sanford Florida and rented a car and drove back to Jacksonville. We stocked up on provisions and are fully loaded. Tomorrow we will relax and just take care of a few odds and ends. Then on Wednesday we will do some sightseeing around Jacksonville. On January 3rd we will shove off early in the morning and start our journey down the St. John's River. As I had mentioned before the St. John's River is one of the few rivers that actually flows north. As one travels south the river becomes much more narrow and brings you back in time to an environment that the early settlers of Florida saw.
