Every beach needs a playground to provide the kiddos something to do when they're tired of swimming or the water is full of sharks! Just kidding - sort of. I don't think there are sharks in these waters, but many places along the Florida coasts require one to be wary and watchful.

The Cedar Key pier was the focal point of this small fishing village. People came to the pier to fish, to unload their wares such as sponges, to socialize, or just to sit in the sun and relax.
But one day a hurricane roared in from the Gulf of Mexico and devastated the pier. For years, it sat, a mess of broken boards and pilings.
Today, however, the pier has been rebuilt. Constructed of concrete and steel pilings driven deep into the ocean floor, it looks to be able to withstand anything Mother Nature can throw at it.
The people are back. It's not the same, of course; never will be. But it is solid and in its own way, beautiful.
