Default 81 in Fl. today. We took a 126 mile river cruise

It was 81 degrees today here in central Florida. I've been slow at work, so we decided to go for a lunch cruise. We put in at Deland Fl. and rode up the St Johns River for 63 miles to our lunch stop. The river and Lake George were like a mirror the whole day. The boat cruised awesome all day. Coming back, we ran across the lake for 10 miles at 96 MPH. Here's a video. Wally, my motor guy, was in back getting his face ripped off!

Here's some pics from our lunch stop. Corky Bells,[formerly Gator Landing] in Palatka, Fl.

Very nice. Great way to bag off work and have some fun. I am back in Fl tomorrow and glad to hear the temps are staying up there. I love to run the rivers when I can. Nice change.

Today, I was cleaning snow all day and just turned on the computer and watched your video. Made me wish I was with you guy's instead of here. Glad to see that you had a great day.
