Day 23: Yulee — Jacksonville Beach (37.5 miles)

How am I ever going to get anywhere, if I’m stopping all the time to take pictures? You can think the people of Florida are a collective goof troop (politicians and otherwise), but there’s no denying the weather and scenery are gorgeous.

The first hour today was eastward. Given that I try to set out shortly after sunrise, this meant I was facing directly into the sun as it rose. Too bad I didn’t pack any sunglasses.

Once I crossed a bridge into Amelia Island, I began an absolutely beautiful stretch mostly along separate bike paths, through the island and onto Big and Little Talbot islands. It finished with a quick ferry ride back to the mainland, the ECG logo displayed proudly on the side.

Then it was through a series of strip malls (and strip clubs) to get around Jacksonville city limits and finally back out to the Atlantic coast. I threw my stuff in the room and dove into the ocean.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
