Today we drove north on hwy 17 to buy some wood clamps and other misc materials. In the end, we spent more that we had expected to spend but left the place in good spirits. Having completed our Ortega Landing Marina on the Ortega River just off the much larger St. Johns river and on the south side of Jacksonville.
task early we decided to visit
The marina is very nice and has all the buzz words and amenities one would expect at a more upscale marina.You can read about it yourself and while you are at it look it up on Active Captain. We were suitably impressed and even got a very good deal on an Edson pedestal arm - like free. The owners were cleaning out very good junk and giving it away.
All shopping is mere minutes walk or bike ride. We at at Chick-Fil-A for a quick bite before checking dingy prices at West Marine, Later I took the Admiral to a antiques shop while I rested off the meal. All-in-all it was a wonderful day of clear skies, warm temperatures and beautiful sites.
