Mon, Mar 11, 2019: The Marina at Ortega Landing, Jacksonville, FL to Green Cove Springs, St John’s River, FL
23.9 miles … 4 hours
We have been looking forward to this portion of the Loop for a long time.
A beautiful day to cruise and a short day of just under 24 miles. We didn’t even have lunch until we docked. Then Rip was off for a hair cut and to stop by City Hall and pay for our night’s dockage.
We have the dock to ourselves, have electric and are by a park for Cally. Life is good.
The park is quite large, but the highlight is the Spring, which feeds under the city pool to a water fall and then runs to the river.
Hard to see in the pic, but it is a deep hole with beautiful rocks inside.
You cannot get to close to the spring itself
We are here only one night, then off to Welaka, FL.
