Wecome to Cedar Key!

This a view of the Gulf of Mexico from the main island of Cedar Key. This is the north west part of Florida. We happened upon this small fishing village in rural Florida just by happenstance. It is a little piece of paradise!

This is the view of our accommodation from the water. We are on the third floor with a loft bedroom at Park Place.

Oatie is making his way back to the motel, which is very pet friendly. The motel cat is called Bella, a lovely black and white feline!

Oatie loves to sunbathe in front of the sliding door or out on the balcony.

This is our view every morning.

From the balcony!

The downtown is truly unique with antique and second hand stores and ART galleries! I loved the Cooperative gallery and Deja Vu Consignment shop. I bought a bunch of DMC embroidery floss and a quilt for my sister made by a local resident, Laura who passed away recently. The people here are so friendly! We met Anne at the Historical Museum today, who is a transplanted Canadian and a former teacher too.

Inventive Art is everywhere!

I've been taking interesting photos of doors and old buildings. This is one of the doors on 2nd Street, the main street of Cedar Key. More of Cedar Key to come!

Wonderful photos Donna. I love that signpost, the figure and the door. You are going to make some lovely artwork from that I am sure. How nice too that there are pet friendly motels around.
