Hi Girls & Guys:
Attached you will find pics of the ships I encountered while coming up the river to Jacksonville! Next to Norfolk & NYC Jacksonville is probably the busiest port! You can travel almost 200 miles up the St. John’s River. There was a plan at one time to continue the river with a canal to the west coast of Florida but it failed to get funding. The Navy has a large facility at the beginning of the river but the sun was on the wrong side to get pics of the ships!

I tried to get different perspectives on these large ships to show their size. The large dredge looked like a science fiction behemoth belching noise and smoke. Hope you enjoy the pics? The cranes that pick the boxes off the ships look like giant giraffes!

Ciao! For now,
Mike
