Riding Duo

Cedar Key is a great place to raise kids. I think. These young ladies were enjoying a warm October day without a care in the world.

I almost stopped to lecture them on bicycle safety, but figured that wouldn't win any friends. :)

Women Bikers Take Over Cedar Key

We thought we'd take a nice leisurely drive over to Cedar Key.  It's about 75 miles west of where we live in Ocala.

Coming up Highway 19, we were overtaken by a group of women bikers, most of whom were driving beautiful Harleys.  I'm guessing there were about 30 people in the group.  

They turned left on County Road 24 and we followed.  Sure enough they led us right into Cedar Key.

At that point they went their way and we went ours.  We saw some on the Dock later, and ran into a couple of other women bikers who were not part of the group, but said some of the women were their friends.

As we left, we noted the women's bikes still parked on the bridge, and another smaller group of bikers heading into the dock.

There's just something about Cedar Key that calls to Bikers everywhere!

The Mullet House

For some reason I call this the Mullet House. I don't know why.

A Stilted House

A house in Cedar Key must be built high enough to withstand the surge of water from hurricane force winds. That generally means it must be 12 feet above ground as that's the high-level watermark in Cedar Key. A stilted house like this allows the water to run under the house and hopefully leave the structure with little or no damage.

Island Pizzeria

We have yet to patronize this establishment but have been told their pizza is excellent. Maybe next time we drive to Cedar Key we stop by the Island Pizzeria.

Back Bay and Water Tower

From this spot in the back bay area, one can get a good view of the Cedar Key water tower.

Horse Drawn Open Carriage

A horse drawn open carriage is a very popular way to see Cedar Key in relative comfort, especially on warm days. The first shot was taken on Main Street in downtown Cedar Key. The second photo comes from the Dock area. I hope all the horses are treated as well as the one in the second picture seems to be.

Girl With a Line

No, silly, a fishing line! Fishing is a great way to spend a beautiful sunny afternoon in Cedar Key.

Pirates Cove

An old-timey place to stay when you visit Cedar Key.
