Walk on Black Creek Trail

Location: Jacksonville, NY (High 74, Low 63)

Morning Run JacksonvilleAfter all the running around we did yesterday, it’s been nice today to have a little more leisure and recreational time.

We started out this morning with our second run for the week. It seems like forever since we’ve been running, but it’s really been just about two months. We are about three weeks away from our half in Key West.

Black Creek Trail looked like a nicely maintained trail. There was also a nice parking area and a restroom.












Optimistically wearing our sunglasses, which sadly turned out not to be needed.



















Would anyone like a palm tree?




For just a few bucks…



It was really getting dark by this point, so we ended up cutting our walk short and heading back after only a little over a mile. We made it back to the truck just as it was starting to rain a bit.


It was a nice little find…maybe we’ll check it out again when we are back this way in April. We’re at the end of our short visit in Jacksonville…tomorrow morning we head south to Malabar on our way to Grassy Key RV Park in Marathon for the month of January.
