|Yep, that's us|
Bob and I decided to get this week started by driving to the
"Spring Park" just south of us in Green Cove Springs which has a swimming pool fed by a natural spring...How cool is that..There is a pier, playground and at least a mile of paved walking paths. and since it was a warm and sunny day when we started we tried out our new and huge umbrella for keeping the sun at bay.
The water was crystal clear coming from the spring as well as along the shore of the St. John river but as the river got deeper it turned the color of tea...from the tannin in the water
There was wild life and if you look closely you will see boats in the shipyards on the river
In photo above to the right, (south-east)you can see the bridge spanning the river heading to St. Augustine and points east and then look to the left towards the north and you can see the Buckman bridge spanning the river farther north. Look closely you can barely make out the Jacksonville skyline.
Then right on the river's edge you will see all the beautiful homes that adorn the river front and the storm clouds that are blowing in.
And always you will see nature's art and mans garbage
