Christmas Day in jax, Fla

Santa came thru and gave me great Fully powered 6.5 conditions on the St. John's river in Jacksonville Florida on Christmas Day.  The winds were WNW in the upper 'teens I would guess.  I was windsurfing at a place called the county dock off Mandarin road.  This is just to the South of I-295 as the highway crosses the river and on the Eastern riverbank.  On the West side of the river is Orange park and a big mall.  On the East side is state road 13 and I-95 that lead North into downtown Jacksonville( also on the St Jonh's river).  The river is over 3 mi wide where I was sailing yet the water seemed smoother than Lanier for a similar wind.  The water is brackish at this point in and has a brown tint - it looks a little like tea - to put it nicely.  It was pretty warm out, in the 50's.  

Hope Santa delivered in Atlanta as well.  Merry Christmas.

Only the Abominable Snowman delivered on Christmas.  Windy (very) and 32-34. Did anyone make it out?
