This is the boat we spend our time on. It’s an Albin 27. Nice sleeper berth, galley and fairly large cockpit. Very comfortable. We spent most of the winter on it. We took it to Key Biscayne, S of Miami, by way of the St Johns River to Jacksonville, FL and down the ICW. The ICW was nice…love looking for dolphins…but you can not beat the St Johns River for wildlife!!
The Manatees come into Blue Springs during the winter. You can beach a boat or kayak and walk into the springs from the river. There is a spot to anchor, if you can’t beach, a short ways N, and you can dingy in. That’s what we do. I took these in late Jan ‘09.
The Albin 27 , below, showed up in Silver Glen Springs, just off of Lake George. It has a hardtop. Jim has been wanting to put one on ours…after he saw this one he’s sure he wants one. Me too! Beautiful boat…Muskrat Love..out of Welaka, FL.
If you follow my blog for very long…you will see I like all the wildlife around us, I love our boat and being on the water. So keep checking back…you might be surprised at what you’ll find.
