We’re back from our marvelous trip down the St. John’s River. We trailered our little Catalina 22 to Palatka and sailed south to Hontoon Island State Park. The riverbanks were so beautiful with new leaves on the trees and Spanish moss swaying in the breeze. We saw lots of bald eagles, egrets, pelicans, red-shouldered hawks and osprey. In fact many of the waterway markers had osprey nests on them with young. We also saw lots of gators and even some manatees. We took one full week and are so glad that we went. The weather was good and we even met some old friends on the way back.
Martha took great care of the garden while we were gone and everything has really grown. We have lots of gorgeous lettuce and new beds of spinach and arugula are ready and look great. We’ve been setting out tomato plants since we’ve been back and are nearly done with that. We look forward to seeing you soon.
