Final day of the trip has us driving from the Springs which are inland to our campsite at Fort Clinch State Park on Fernandina Beach.

Taking the ferry over from the mainland. Never took the bike on a ferry so that was kinda cool. The trip across the St Johns river might have took all of 5 minutes.

Our campsite was on the bay side so we were under the tree canopy and it was kinda buggy. As soon as we arrived we dumped all of of our gear and motored up the beach for a swim. Next time we come we will try to get a walk in tent site at the beach.

After our swim we headed into the little town of Fernandina beach. It's a nice little town with lots of places to eat and plenty to look at.

This is the oldest bar in Florida. Didn't have a drink. But enjoyed the ac as it was little humid.

On the way home through Georgia we stopped in the little town of Darien to stretch our legs and I grabbed a Geocache.

That pretty much ended the trip. We took the 17 most of the way back as it was windy. ON the highway and the wee was getting pushed around a bit. We also stopped for some good Mexican food right over the Border from SC and Georgia.

This was my first extended trip by motorcycle and we are hoping to do many more in the future.
