Let’s get out for a while!

After weeks of doing nothing, we felt we needed to get out.  We will still be safe.  As a matter of fact, we didn’t even get out of the truck.  We just went for a ride.  Florida is starting to open up.  The beaches are open for exercise and some are open without restrictions.

My lap is not Benji’s normal place to sit.  He is on my lap but still tethered in.  BooBoo is tethered in his seat and poor Bella is in the back seat all by herself, tethered in as well.

Our sweet Benji has a barking problem.  If Benji can see out the windows, he will bark at people on motorcycles, people walking down the street, and especially panhandlers begging for money which are rampant in Florida.  So if we are in an area where Benji will bark, I put him on my lap until we are out of that area.

We actually took two road trips during the last few days.  One to St Augustine and yesterday, we took a road trip to Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach.

Hecksher Drive is a very nice scenic drive.  Our neighbor in our RV resort recommended this drive and it was worth it.

While driving along Heckscher Drive, we saw a narrow road running along the St James river.  We decided a little detour might be interesting.  As we drove down the narrow road, a big ship motored alongside us.  Us on the road and the ship on the waterway.  Wonder what it was carrying.  Where did it come from and where was it going.

Gearbulk Holding Limited is an international shipping company headquartered in Pfaeffikon, Switzerland. The company operates the world’s largest fleet of open hatch gantry and semi-open jib craned vessels. These vessels specialize in carrying unitized breakbulk cargoes like forest products, non-ferrous metals, and steel.

We did not take pictures because we didn’t get out of the truck.  Maybe next time.

As for now, Be Safe, God Bless, and Most of all, Be Kind.
