  20. Krystal says:

    I believe everything said was actually very logical.
    However, what about this? what if you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting your information is not good., however suppose you added something that makes
    people want more? I mean Slow Boat to Florida – Trips of
    Discovery is a little vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo’s front
    page and note how they create post headlines to grab people to open the links.

    You might try adding a video or a related pic or
    two to get people interested about everything’ve written. In my
    opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.

  21. I love what you guys are usually up too. This kind of clever work and
    reporting! Keep up the amazing works guys I’ve included you guys to
    my blogroll.

  22. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say
    that I’ve really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts.

    After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again very
    soon!

    […] *SBFL stands for Slow Boat to Florida. It is a series of my blog posts, which started with a posting that had the same title.  Each numbered heading has two parts. The first is “Planned,” and when we visit the planned location, a “Visited” label appears at the beginning, next to SBFL. The essence of this series is not to seek new lands and exotic cultures. Rather, it is to cover our journey of discovery (hence the title of our blog Trips Of Discovery) that has to do with seeing with a new eye the coastal locations of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) where present-day America started to flourish. The SBFL series represents part travel, part current and historical anthropological highlights of selected locations and coastal life.  We’re comparing then and now, based on observations made by Dorothea and Stuart E. Jones in their 1958 National Geographic article titled, “Slow Boat to Florida” and a 1973 book published by National Geographic, titled America’s Inland Waterway (ICW) by Allan C. Fisher, Jr. We also take a brief look at the history of the locations that I am writing about. Finally, we bundle it up with our observations during our actual visits to the locations and our interviews with local residents. Think of it as a modest time capsule of past and present. My wife and I hope that you, too, can visit the locations that we cover, whether with your boat or by car. However, if that is not in your bucket list to do, enjoy reading our plans and actual visits as armchair travelers anyway. Also, we would love to hear from you on any current or past insights about the locations that I am visiting. Drop me a note, will you? […]
