Today, I am taking you all on a tiny part of the fun and romance
the went along with us on our serendipitous two day trip last week.
to beautiful Cedar Key.
3 hours from home on the Nature Coast of FL.
Did I tell you Cedar Key is 3 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico?
It is. (big smile)
This is a quaint, small fishing village, artist haven and nature lover's paradise.
This is Dock Street, a few short blocks between the sunrise and the sunset, literally.
Dock street has a few fantastic restaurants, cute shops and funky art galleries and bait shops.
All the rest of the island is residential and/or vacation rentals.
Lovely and funky cottages, art studio's and lots of water!
I love funky art galleries and seeing all the wonderful creativity the Lord has gifted artists with.
After we arrived we walked around the island holding hands.
I say this because prior to hubby's knee surgery last summer, our hand holding walks had not been possible due to his using a cane for about 4 or 5 years.
We worked up an appetite for a delicious diner at this restaurant, the Seabreeze.
Restaurant is on the top floor.
Here we are inside.
We sat at the first vacant table to the left.
I took this as we were waiting to be seated.
You can see the boat lift area and parking lot.
At the very end are two story condos/vacation rentals.
Architecture is in keeping with the low key feel of the entire island.
My handsome hubby.
Think the smile says it all, don't you?
This was our delicious grilled flounder.
I love, love, love sweet potato fries
(hubby had same with exception of regular fries)
It was so good!
Do you like sweet potato fries?
This is our special dessert, key lime pie, with two forks.
It was the dessert we had on our very first date.
So any special occasions we always order it and always two forks to share it!
Do any of you like key lime pie?
Waiting on the rocks for the sunset after our lovely diner.
A wonderful gentlemen walking by offered to take our picture.
We love this picture of us even though the gentlemen was unfamiliar with
our digital SLR cameras and shot into the sun.
Seriously, I tweaked the exposure a bit so we know its us.
The Lord just kept blessing us and we are so thankful for this serendipitous trip.
A beautiful tropical sunset in back of more vacation rentals on the water.
If you look at the photo of us on the rocks very carefully.
You will see that this picture is what was in back of us.
I used my long lens to capture a more brilliant up close sunset.
I hope you enjoyed sharing a tiny part of our get-a-way with us.
From my heart to yours, may your day be blessed.
