Nov 5, 2018 - Florida

Made it to Florida, but we do miss Gulf Shores. Drove past some of the distruction from the recent hurricane. What a mess. Rain started again and has been on and off for the last few days. We did get into the City of Cedar Key, and spent some time at Crystal Springs where we had some conch and alligator for snacks, saw Captian Jack Sparrow and even saw a few manatees. Temps in high 70s and low 80s.

Up and Rovin

Feb 16, 2017 - Cedar Key and chow-dah

Cedar Key Today Steve, Scout and I took a ride south about 66 miles to the Gulf town of Cedar Key. When I lived in Central Florida back in the early 1970’s, I remember going to Cedar Key several times and wanted Steve to experience it too. Plus, our friend Lori Simpson urged us to go and eat at Tony’s. So, between me wanting to go and Lori giving us a recommendation for a place to eat, it was a no brainer! We left the Rendezvous around 9am and headed south. It was a nice drive with lots of farmland and hanging moss on the old oak trees. We...

2017 Life in our RV

Dec 18, 2016 - Paradise Found (Again)

Greetings from Florida, Dennis’ home state! After leaving Georgia we headed south to Perry, Florida where we stayed at a nice Elks Lodge. We had a minor repair done there and met some nice people who camped alongside us at the Elks. We spent an evening visiting and sharing drinks and appetizers. After two nights there we traveled 60 miles south to Old Town, Florida and stayed at a place we had been to twice on our travels, Suwannee River Hideaway. This campground is family owned and is unique because they have a ¼ mile boardwalk that runs...

May 1, 2016 - Carrabelle to Cedar Key

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...

Apr 29, 2016 - Off the Grid

One of the reasons we were so anxious to get our windows done and head out of Hudson was that we had reservations for 2 nights in one of our favorite Florida backwater spots, Cedar Key. The place and the people are a little too funky for us to consider living there, and it is also far from any of the amenities which we think we require, but for a couple of days it is a really fun place to visit. It is of course surrounded by water and the main occupations are fishing and tourism. Because of our late departure we were only able to spend one...

Apr 16, 2016 - Cedar Key, FL

2016-04-16. Cedar Key,FL Cedar Key Florida bills itself as “what Florida used to be” and, it does have a Margaritaville feel to it. We stayed at a really nice RV park, not surprisingly called Cedar Key RV Resort and frankly, the RV park was probably the nicest “community” there. The town was a mix of old, beautiful Victorian homes and run down trailers and shacks; one next to the other. There were a lot of fishing bungalows and businesses selling bait and fishing charters. I half expected Ernest Hemingway to be lounging in one of the...

Bayou Bound

Jun 5, 2014 - It's Getting HOT Outside!

We have been moving around a bit over the past couple weeks. Not too much excitement. We did a brief visit to Cedar Key - which is not part of the "Key West" Keys but is located due west of Ocala, Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. If you didn't know, a "Key" is an island formed from a coral reef. Despite not being one of the southern Florida Keys, Cedar Key works hard to hold its own as a resort location and maintaining the "Jimmy Buffett" Island lifestyle. On Cedar Key, there are several restaurants and bars, all with great water views, cold...

Feb 11, 2014 - Cedar Key, FL

Hello Everyone, Today we continued North up the Florida coast to a very remote location called Cedar Keys! Here we found a nice campground, Cedar Key Sunset Isle RV Park, that is very quaint, and right on the water! Much to our surprise, the tide here, coupled with the shallow depth, causes the water to all but disappear from sight during low tide. When this happens, all sorts of birds come out and scour he tidal basin for food. This is best seen in the early morning (~8 AM) while drinking a coffee...lol I have included a picture of a map...

Feb 4, 2014 - Cedar Keys

Yesterday we drove to the Cedar Keys which are a cluster of islands north of Crystal River. It was sunny and warm when we left the campground in early afternoon, but by the time we arrived in the Cedar Keys, the fog had moved in again. So I got the opportunity for more fog pictures. The Cedar Keys are named for the Eastern Red Cedar which were once abundant in the area. Harvesting red cedars for pencil manufacturing was important to Cedar Key in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. In 1849, Eberhard Faber came to the US from Germany looking...

Dec 30, 2013 - Back to Cedar Key

Worked our butts off this past week, got everything done and ready for the renter. We were too tired to drive all the way in one trip so spent the night in Jesup,Ga. Got back to RV early afternoon, 80 degrees, so nice to get out of all the Winter clothes. Today is in the 70s. Hope all of our Family and Friends have a safe and great Christmas.
