Finally we have the day we were hoping since we started the trip! Today we left Astor Bridge Marina, in Astor Florida and head back southbound on the St. Johns River. We left early and had some help from Ted ( a resident at the marina) which led us to a successful departure!
We were very nervous considering we had failed twice docking and leaving this marina due to the size of the dock, the current around the bridge next to it, as well as our general in-experience.
The day turned out beautiful and our next stop was Hontoon Island State Park. This state park is only accessible by boat so this was a prime opportunity.
We end up the day anchoring just outside of Blue Springs State Park! Hope you enjoy!
