But today, all the kids remembered the blog because they were so excited that not only did we finally make it to the Water Taxi, but that the Water Taxi was open for business. And they wanted to share their fun.
Our first Water Taxi attempt was made on December 24th, when we were truly shocked to get there and find out that the Water Taxi is closed the day before Christmas. Shocked. Although in retrospect, everything was closed here, so I'm not so sure why we were so shocked. I keep telling the kids, this just ain't New York. When we first moved here, I used to say it ain't Kansas anymore, but I stopped when I realized that actually, I think it is kind of like Kansas.
Anyway, here's some Water Taxi fun. For a mere $24 (and I'm not beings sarcastic - what can a family of six do for $24 anywhere else? Nothing, that's what) we took a pretty serene, if somewhat windy and chilly, ride on a nearly empty water taxi on the beautiful St. John's River. I think it was the St. John's River, but really, we could have been anywhere. I'm so bad at things like that. I could ask Josh but he isn't here and does it really matter? A river is a river is a river and woohoo, we were on a boat!
