St. John's River - Part 2
Then we have a picture of "Duke", the Capt of Sturgeon.....At the helm, not shaving, and trying his best to look like Earnest Hemingway!!!!
So I am NOT Hemingway.....Who is!
We are having a ball, and pics will follow!
St. John's River
Gorgeous, and here is our houseboat (actually a sister-ship). We are enjoying, and I'll have a lot more to send.
This is a marvelous week.

Nother Trip....Nother Trip Mode!
This is an event we have wished for over at least three or four years.
We are going to depart next Sunday on a one-week houseboat trip. We launch at DeLand, Florida from Holly Hills Marina. We will be on a 45 foot houseboat. Duchess and I will be joined by a couple from our Elks Lodge and we will boat-fish-enjoy for our week which we actually had to book a year-plus in advance.
The two-bedroom, fully-equipt vessel will be ours for a 30-40 mile trip on the St. John's River. We tonight planned some menu items, and listed what we need to take for the successful voyage.
Our trip will begin Sunday with a class which will educate us to the controls and quirks of our vessel. I am to be Captain......after all I am a former Coxswain in the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Duchess and I had a 27 foot flybridge sportfisher. Now a larger vessel, but in MUCH calmer waters.
I'll post pics as we go......
