Cedar Key

Yes, we took another trip. This past weekend Husband and I traveled north to Cedar Key.
It is about 2 & 1/2 hours north of us and very secluded. I'm sure some of you have been there before - it is beautiful. Very much old Florida.
If you like to fish and you enjoy some peace and quite, this is the place for you.

We had to take the cats with us because our counter tops were being resurfaced. They were not happy about it.

They look peaceful here but they were not. Not at all.

Husband rented us the Wabi Sabi Cottage.

The cottage included seashells and oysters all around :)

I have to show you some photos of the inside because I loved it so much.
It was built in 1919 and was beautifully refurbished in 2004.

Here I am in the kitchen. Just how Husband likes it ;)

The living room.

Our bedroom in the loft. (Notice the seashell bedspread)

A beautiful spiral staircase to the loft.

The first day we woke up early and headed out on the kayak to fish.

We both caught trout but Husband caught our dinner :)

We encountered lots of wildlife including 2 baby sea turtles, dolphins, rays and plenty of bonnet head sharks.

We rode bikes around the island.

And found some nice spots to pick up shells and oysters.

Sunday morning we tried to get in a little more fishing before we left.

Lots of little crabs were hanging out here.

We were sad to leave, but very happy to be able to come home and enjoy a sunset like this.

I hope your weekend was as lovely as mine.
