Yesterday we had a long day as we went from Ortega Landing to Acosta Creek Marina. The route was mainly wide open water at this point, and not terribly scenic.
Today the scenery improved greatly as we traveled from Acosta to Hontoon Island State Park. After a 12-mile stretch of wide Lake George, the waterway narrowed and twisted and turned. We were almost reminded of our own Mississippi River, and are enjoying river boating for a few days. Fresh water and no tides! As we have been told, this is "old Florida," meaning this area has not been developed with condos and resorts. The marinas are few and far between, and are intended for boats much smaller than ours. Nevertheless, the wildlife is plentiful, the pace is slow, and we are loving it.
This slip didn't work for us!
We took a short dinghy ride this afternoon along with John and Pam from Short Vacation.
