Thanks.

Yes, make the trip. I'm wishing now we had stayed longer on the St. Johns, but in reality, we got out just in time because the storm that kept us in Isle of Hope apparently hit Jacksonville big time.

My wife wanted a photo book to carry around with her. After deleting the obvious out of focus and otherwise useless shots, I still had over 500 photos. I pared it down to 300, then together we selected 100 which I sent to Walmart for printing ($14.00 to print 100 photos).

With prints in hand, she selected 80 to fit the largest book she could carry around conveniently.

Digital is a big change from the old days of film!

I guess now I have to plan the next trip. I wonder how she would feel about spending next summer on the Chesapeake Bay (we're both from MD originally).

rwidman: Being a Baltimoron myself, I did lots of exploring on the Chesapeake. I don't know how long it would really take to do everything there, but a season or two may not be enough. There's just too many nooks and crannies. Great trip on the St. Johns. Better get a bigger album for the Chesapeake though.

Ditto. We have been going to the Chesapeake since the early '70s both by boat and car. We have done 4 seasonal cruises up there. Still long to get back. The fall is the best. It is almost magical being anchored in a cove hearing a flight of geese flying over. The nights are cool, and the days are crisp. Great coves, great towns, and great food. Cruising doesn't get much better.
