It is known as the "Honeymoon Cottage," and was built by Henry Taylor in 1959 for Phillip and Margaret Thomas of Gainesville.
Constructed on stilts about 300 feet from the shore, it was connected to land by a long narrow boardwalk also on stilts.
Over the years, various storms have taken their toll. In 1985, the cottage was pretty much destroyed by Hurricane Elena. Since then, other storms have destroyed bit and pieces of it until there is nothing left except a few of the stilts and a few boards.
Personally, I think the city of Cedar Key should rebuild the cottage for it has become such an important part of Cedar Key's soul!
RIP. The entire photo blogging community is in mourning today after learning of the death of Tina and Tom Forrester who were killed in a car accident a couple of days ago in southern Ontario. Tina, known as EG, or Cameral Girl, was a good friend and an excellent photographer. We will miss her greatly. Our deepest sympathy goes out to their families.

Cedar Key is an island fishing village west of Ocala on the Gulf of Mexico. It has, for the most part, escaped the ravages of time and modernization, looking much as it did when we first visited the island in 1988. This was cross-posted to Ocala & Central Florida Photos.

Obviously this photo was taken a couple of months ago. It's not something I've seen before in Cedar Key, and we've been there on many occasions during the Christmas season. I thought it was rather creative and fun and certainly appropriate for Cedar Key.

Cedar Key is mainly all about clams. People here raise 'em and sell 'em. There are several major companies that raise and harvest clams in Cedar Key.
One of these is noted for their Sweet Littleneck Clams.
This boat had just pulled up the ramp after a clam harvest. It is, as you can see, loaded with clams.
You can learn all about clam farming in Cedar Key in this YouTube Video:

As of today, this blog will be inactive. We've been taking pictures of Cedar Key for about 29 years. Interestingly enough, not much has changed in Cedar Key during those years.
We will return to Cedar Key on occasion and will take photographs, but they will be posted on our Ocala & Central Florida blog.
Thanks to all who have visited and commented on this blog - those visits and comments are much appreciated!
