I paddled up the St. Johns to Blue Springs Run
St. Johns River
Passing the French Ave ramp. I do not park on the ramp when launching my kayak.
I had not paddled up the St. Johns to the north end of Hontoon Island for a while. Doing the shorter "Snake Creek Loop" instead.
After I got out and pulled the kayak on the dock, and carried it to shore to keep it out of the way, a ranger said some people land at the area above.
Closed to protect vegetation
There are 6, I think, primitive cabins. Lightbulb and fan. Cook outside. Walk to restroom
"Other two?" I only see three totems
Back in the yak at 1 PM
To the Hontoon Dead River
When I was at Hontoon State Park, a ranger asked me to report how the conditions were. I was going to ask you, I replied.
Swallow tail kite
Landed at 4:15
Someone thought a car was a bike.
In main part of Blue Springs State Park. Boardwalk along the spring run
In the water.
Miller Time. Ormond Beach. I was headed to my ocean front room at the Sun Deck Motel
This room is not the one I was first given. That one did not have a full kitchen. I went back to the office and said I was planning on cooking and needed a kitchen. I got it. And was told the people who lucked into an ocean front room would be asked if they could switch. They did not. Jerks. But, worked out for me as I was charged one night at the non-kitchen rate for two nights for a room with a kitchen. And will get $10 a night off my next stay.
