Caleb's Big Adventure

This summer, Caleb lived on a houseboat on the St. John's River for a week.

He was with 7 other scouts from this area of FL and 4 leaders.

The group of 8 scouts formed 2 crews which took turns driving, cooking, cleaning and being in charge while the other crew played; one day on, one day off.

Caleb had to apply for the position so we were thrilled when he was chosen to participate.

He earned the watersports and motorboating badge and got a boating license also.

The river was mostly peaceful.

They saw interesting homes.

They endured some stormy weather.

This Riverquest Adventure was the first of what our area scout council hopes will be an annual event that scouts from all over the USA will want to experience. Caleb was on the maiden voyage. Hmm. Can it be called a maiden voyage if it's boys?

Industry along St. John's.

Houses of the rich & famous. Well, maybe not.

More industry.

Jacksonville Zoo on the last day.

All these photos were from Caleb's camera. This is the ONLY photo of him.
But I like it.
Hope you did also!

that's really funny! i wondered why you kept putting caleb's photo in - i wondered if blogger did it because they can do stuff like that - but that's funny! i'm glad you posted it several times. it looks like a great trip, a great opportunity! and, yes, i think it can still be called a 'maiden' voyage :) just don't tell the boys.
