Back from Black Creek boating trip

We are back, as far as the reader is concerned...

Busy times, we had family and friends visit the Serenghetti Spa and Veldt Lounge for the traditional Thanksgiving feast. And when the weather was good we naturally took the travelers out on the Barco to enjoy the St Johns River, Doctor's Lake and Black Creek.

The fun in these little trips is that we don't have to go very far to see the natural beauty of the wetlands and in doing so feel many miles away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Thanksgiving weekend had us on a short trip;

Parental Unit and Spousal Unit

Sylvia and Len from Vero Beach

Buckman Bridge (I-295)

Being the weekend of Thanksgiving, we were pretty much alone on the waters of Northeast Florida. Too bad we are responsible older types, we could have been raising all kinds of heck!

The following weekend, the Barco was invited to visit friends who reside in a small camp on Black Creek. We were assured that we could park for the night on a dock in support of the Christmas Party that was planned for this past Saturday;

Somebody is comfortable in the 75 degree sunshine.

About an hour and a half up Black Creek

Another odd sight in the middle of nowhere; A Tiki Bar with a warning that "trespassers will be shot".
Not very welcoming, is it?

For Sale. I wonder, how much?

In the middle of nowhere, a flagpole.

The Campsite with the three docks.

We snuck up on the locals...

We tied up to this dock for the night. I have a feeling it will become a very regular stop for us in the future.

The Camphouse.

A very nice time with completely down to earth folks, and we hope to see everyone soon!

I was listening to some early 60's music. Here are the Pre-Fab Four from Liverpool; Dirk McQuickly, Stig Ohara, Ron Nasty and Barry Wom: The Rutles!

You always post the best pics of your adventures.

Buck; You are too kind. I try to get some photos of our little trips to ensure we remember correctly what we did and to make sure that others get an idea of what we get to see.
