At the time Lois Anne captured this shot, the building at the left was known as The Captain's Table. For many years, this restaurant/bar served residents and visitors of Cedar Key. Something happened. The Captain's Table or at least the name disappeared. Some time later it was reincarnated as The Rusty Rim and Coconuts (also a restaurant and bar). Then it burned down. On our last visit to Cedar Key it was being rebuilt.
We liked it best when it was still The Captain's Table; when, on several occasions, we sat out on that pier savoring frozen margaritas as the heat of the day met the cool, cool, cool of the evening.

Cedar Key is located 24 miles west of the last main north-south highway in central Florida. It's a nice ride. Nothing but a couple of little towns and a few small businesses until you arrive on the bridge that leads you onto the island that is Cedar Key. Motorcycle riders love it and you'll often find Cedar Key full of bikes, mostly Harley Davidson's.

Please notice the pole. Hurricanes have hit Cedar Key at various times down through the years. The maximum sea level thus far has been 12 feet. Thus new homes in Cedar Key must be built on stilts so that the water can rush underneath the structure without washing it away.
