|Jacksonville Florida’s cable-stayed Dames Point Bridge towers over the St. John’s river at 175 feet high|
We’ve crossed under that bridge quite a few times—in our sailboat.
Today’s goal: hit the road at 8 am, book a ferry in St. Mary’s to Cumberland Island National Seashore for tomorrow, and see with the parks office to see if any campsites opened up.
|Bye-bye Florida, we’re northbound at last.|
We stopped off at Fernandina Beach seashore along the way to stretch our legs. Then we stopped at Eagan’s Creek Park to enjoy a close-up view of the vivid green verdant low country. Wayne spotted a ‘gator; got a photo but with its back to us, not that interesting a shot. I’ll post it anyway if anyone’s interested; let me know.
No luck on a Cumberland campsite, but tomorrow’s ferry’s booked. We’ll get in a good day hike tomorrow, heading out on the first ferry of the day, and leaving on the last.
