Spending the day in Cedar Key!

Well, it requires more than one post!

Our first stop was the beach....

and then we like to walk along the boardwalk.

It looks like it should be crowded but I think most everyone was enjoying the restaurants and pubs when we got there. We heard live music in several of them and most are air conditioned.

We were there to walk and enjoy the sights.

I never tire of the Gulf coast views.

I love the sunshine and scents of the sea!

I hope you enjoy seeing this part of Florida.

Looks like a fun place to visit. Someday, I'd like the girls to see an ocean. They love Lake MI but have never experienced a ocean.

Mary said...

Super fixer upper...love water pictures. What a nice vacation. I'll look for more.

Shirley Hatfield said...

{{{sifh}}}I would love to be on a beach right now! One of my favorite sounds in the world is the sound of waves crashing and sea birds in the background. Living in a mountain and desert state, one misses the salty tang of the sea air. Thank you for the lovely visit to the Gulf. =D

ImSoVintage said...

I definitely want to visit Cedar Key sometime. Do you think that fixer upper is for sale. :)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love the beach and Cedar Key looks like a fun place to visit! Hugs, Linda

DearHelenHartman said...

LOL - a fixer upper - looks more like a blower upper! Sigh. Envious of your scenery. Esp when I see mine is just my messy house, where are those left over fireworks when you need them?

Shannon @ Cozy Home Scenes said...

Looks like a great day. Maybe you should tackle that "fixer upper". Just think of how many blog posts you could get out of that one. hee hee! Have a great weekend my friend!

NanaDiana said...

How much for the fixer-upper? I might be interested!;>) Great photos- xo Diana

The Shop Around the Corner said...

Been to almost every beach in Florida, east and west, still think the Gulf side is the best. Those sunsets are unreal. Now you're really making me want to sit under that umbrella. ;) Doesn't take much for me though.
Enjoy!!!
MUAH!

So you are on the gulf side? It sure looks pretty there. And the beaches don't seem so crowded either. Nice. Is it really hot there? Phew it is hot here. sandie

It all has such a relaxing feel! I love the Gulf Coast. It's our favorite place to vacation. Though our favorite spots are Naples or Panama City Beach!
Love your new blog header!

I love the Gulf Coast! Did you pick up any fresh seafood in Cedar Key? I always come home with something fresh off the boats :)

Ames said...

The Gulf is so calm compared the the Atlantic ocean side. I love going to quaint places and taking in the sights. Looks like you had a great day.~Ames

Sam I Am...... said...

It was 105 here yesterday. Is it cooler there? I would not be out walking here in this heat! LOL! It's been low humidity but then high fire danger so I guess we can't have it all. That town is precious and such great sights! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Katherines Corner said...

OMG... when i was in college at Gainesville we used to drive over to Cedar Key a lot... one of my favorite places! We would start with screwdrivers at the old Island Hotel and then stagger down to the wharf for cheap seafood dinners... do they still serve salads with green peanut butter dressing??

Diane Writes said...

Hi name mate! You know, you have been so blessed to see these beautiful places. I love the view of the waters and being served great meals on those beautiful restaurants.

Have a Beautiful Sunday name mate!

Jann Olson said...

Beautiful photos indeed! Looks like a wonderful place to be.
Hugs,

LANA said...

That area is so beautiful. We used to have a mobile in Bradenton, and loved driving up and down the coast. Was that town with the restaurants also in Cedar Key? Reminds me of Tarpon Springs.
