I stayed my first night in Florida in a Jacksonville city park campground along the coast.
I also took my last ferry ride of the trip, all of about 10 minutes long over the St. Johns River.
The ferry is part of the East Coast Greenway route.
I am of the opinion after 10 weeks of riding that the ECG is more hype than anything else, and is not really a serious effort to link up points along the Atlantic Coast for bicycle travelers. So many rants, though, and so little time.
I started this morning just above the “n” in Jacksonville on the map below.
I’ll ride through St. Augustine and hit the 50 mile/80 kilometer point north of Palm Coast, but haven’t ID’d a place to spend the night yet. The beaches here are all gorgeous, and it’s another beautiful day for a ride.
