Off to Cedar Key For The Festival Today
I took this photo last week. Things in Cedar Key will be a bit crazier this weekend. Folks will pour in for the Seafood Festival and the locals will make easy money charging them to park on their property after the regular parking spots fill up.
If you are full of seafood and tired of the festival hubub, take a ride out towards the Cedar Key "airport" and the state museum. Pure Florida scenery like the picture above is waiting out there in the backcountry of the little island.
Just remember not to park on the landing strip at the "airport".
The pilots frown on that.
Don't forget to take the necessary survival gear ... and your cash.
As I write this, the deer in the front yard are the only ones up around here this morning at 8:00 am. Homecoming was last night and everyone (but me) stayed up too late. Emma came home from college to pass on her crown to the new queen ... this is the first time in 2 years that the homecoming queen wasn't one of my daughters. It's nice to be one of the common folk again.
Eventually, they will stir and I will take them out to Cedar Key, but for now, I think I'll just let them sleep.
Have a great weekend!
