No. 4 Channel - heading into Cedar Key

Beautiful view

Sunset from the deck

Goodnight!


Another short move today from a beach to a key. We drove 172 miles & about 170 of them were thru commercial forests - not much to see but trees.

As we approached Cedar Key, we crossed No. 4 Channel & were pretty much surrounded by water instead of forest. Sunset Isle RV Park was recommended to us by some people we met at Betty's in LA. It's an older but very cute rv park & we have a site backed right up to the water (& mangroves - but we still have a view of the water). We sat outside in our chairs for awhile this evening - it was a beautiful evening. About a half hour before sunset we went out onto one of the decks for a prime view - we were not disappointed. Sunset was gorgeous!

Tomorrow we'll get out to see what's on Cedar Key. One thing we learned from the Cedar Key map & guide is that 95% of farm-raised clams in the US are grown & harvested in the clean waters of Cedar Keys. We'll have to see if we can see some clam farms(?). More later...
