Happy New Year!

We're back...sort of. While we have moved "successfully" across town, we're still inundated by "stuff" and the trials and tribulations (and joys) of moving into a new place, along with the various responsibilities of selling an "old" house.

So, posting will be sporadic at best for awhile.

But, we wanted to thank all of our special friends in the photoblogging world for wishing us well at Christmas and giving us such great support during our move. We deeply appreciate your concern and your kind words.

In return and in gratitude, we send our best wishes to each of you for a wonderful New Year!

[We'll repeat this message on our other blogs. If you check Ocala Daily Photo, you'll find a photo of the entrance to our new community - Stone Creek, in Ocala.]

Cold weather boating

This is the way to go boating when the weather gets a bit chilly in Cedar Key.

We'll be out-of-pocket the rest of the week moving from one place to another. Thus, I won't be able to post or comment. But we want to wish all of our blogging friends a wonderful holiday and a very merry Christmas!

Enjoying drinks and the view

This place was known as the Captain's Table for years. Now it's changed hands and is called Coconuts. I know from personal experience it is a delightful spot to enjoy a frozen Margarita.

Another photog wandering about Cedar Key

I don't know this person. She was crouched down on the pier shooting upward at the boat. Probably trying for an artsy shot. Then she left, which was a good thing, or I would have had to chase her off. I mean, c'mon, I was trying to take a picture, too! ;-) I never saw her again.

Go "click" on the pic and it will get bigger.

Frog's Landing (on the Dock)

The last time we were in Cedar Key, the Frog's Landing was doing a booming business! The restaurant has a mostly seafood menu that looks very good. They also serve a drink called a "frogarita," which I intend to try the next time we're in town.

You can learn more by clicking here.

The back of the Dock

Another view of the back of the Dock from the new pier. The photo has been given a sketcy/watercolor effect.

It will enlarge if you click on the photo.

We are very busy selling our house and moving to another part of town. If the past couple days are indicative of what lies ahead, I'll probably be able to only post and comment sporadically for the next few weeks. But I will do the best I can because I hate to miss all the great photos of our CDP friends!

No cat feeding!

Stray cats are a problem in Cedar Key. We've seen a number of them. These people don't want them around, so don't feed any cats on this property!

You can see the sign more clearly if you embiggen the photo.

Biker meeting at the Seafood Festival

I took this photo standing in the middle of the street. A policeman was directing traffic (something you don't often see in Cedar Key!) and he told me to get out of the street. I tried to explain that I was a photographer and as such had certain privileges...but he didn't understand, wouldn't listen, and was insistent. So I got out of the street - AFTER I took the photo. Heh. Heh!

Get high for $20!

At the Seafood Festival, you could fly high for $20 at the Cedar Key airport. I think this couple was mulling it over. She said, "Let's try it," and he said, "Nah, let's go get a beer!"
