The recently publicised Whaler "ISSUE" mentioned a gathering at St Augustine and docking at the city marina, just a step away from the historic towns historical life style...
Janice, this is your turn, a trip up the St. Johns, and docking in St. Augustine... Run with it!!

Well, alright then...
There are plenty of campsites on the Indian River; but after our experience at Kice Island with the bugs, I'd have to say the Holiday Inn would be my idea of camping. There is a Holiday Inn in Palatka on the St. John's River, inwhich you can park your boat right outside your room. Then off the next day to visit Jacksonville Landing; maybe have lunch then loop around to St. Augustine then back around to Palatka. September sounds like a good time of year.

Janice,

How far is St Augustine from your river? How far is Palatka?

The run from Palatka to Jax is a beautiful, wide and wonderful ride. However since there is so much water it can be very rough, and may take several hours each way. I have only done it once in a large 25' cabin boat and the wind was blowing at least 15-20 Mph from the NE going up took,as I remember, I was not the Captain,several hours, and coming back was not as bad. You could run the other way, and into Lake George, but Lake Geo. can be a bummer for smaller boats if the wind blows also. I some how think that to include St Augistine from Palatka is tooo much boating for one day.
The Trip from Daytona to St Augustine is a nice leisurly 2 hours, several No Wake Zones have done it several times great trip. There are a couple of nice stops with docks in Palm Coast, as well if they are still open to the public. Great to know if weather turns ugly.

St. Augustine Docks get very crowed on weekends so call ahead and reserve, there is also a Hotel with good docks, at least there used to be, I cannot remember the name, it was something like the Chart House or Captain Table, had a great bar and resturant, pretty far from the Historic area.
By the way my lady is a Holiday INN Camper also. I would like to do one of the trips with your group.

I might be able to convince LobstahWoman (aka my wife) to do Holday Inn camping via the boat in September for a run up the rivers. I know she won't camp in a tent that time of year, unless we're in Maine.
