Labor Day weekend traditionally symbolizes the end of summer and the beginning of Fall in the States. However, here in Florida, Summer easily extends way into October and often even November! We spend much of our free time on the dock and playing in the river, so I thought I'd end Labor Day weekend with a few shots of our playtime. Across the river from us is Blount Island. One end of Blount Island is Jacksonville's main shipping port. The other end, closest to us, is a Marine base. Thanks to the Marines, we have a nice clean shoreline across from us!
Ever played Monkey Dock? Picture your good old-fashioned monkey bars, but then imagine they are the wood slats of a dock and you are underneath the dock, racing to see who can get to the end, and then swim back around to the ladder on the floating dock first. That, my friends, is how you play Monkey Dock. It's quite the workout, I might add!
And what's a little play in the water without mermaids? Make the best of the last days of your summer.
