Jacksonville , Florida

15Dec made the short trip to the Landings, a long pontoon dock in the middle of Jacksonville where one can moor for 72 hours for free. Had lunch with Eileen & Larry to celebrate Eileen's birthday at a waterfront cafe. During lunch, Rhum Line moored behind us - all very enjoyable.
Clouds disappeared and temperature reached the mid 20's (centigrade) reassuring us that we are indeed in the south.

Christmas festivities were in full swing around the Xmas tree in the Landings plaza.

16Dec J made the 1 1/2 hour trip on the R5 bus from the bus station to St John Town , a huge shopping area, and had a very enjoyable time wandering round the shops.
17Dec have decided to stay here a couple of days more as severe thunderstorms and heavy rain is forecast.

Sounds like you enjoyed the shopping!
It must be nice to be a little warmer. The mooring looks great.
