Off to Cedar Key, Florida! That is where we headed Wednesday morning. The trip took us a little longer than we thought but we enjoyed every mile!!
It has been too long since we have been able to “hit the road.”
As you know, we haven’t purchased our “downsized” RV yet so we were destined to stay “sticks and bricks” style. We reserved a cottage at Pirates Cove….sounds nice doesn’t it?? The pictures were nice as well…..the reality not so much. Our cottage was rather small and uncomfortable with the A/C not doing a very sufficient job. We decided to go ahead and stay the night since it was getting late and regroup in the morning. Oh how we miss our wheels!!
This morning we located a very nice place called The KingFisher where we were able to get a really nice rental.
We have a one bedroom with a nice kitchen and bath complete with a new tile floor and a lovely dock overlooking the Gulf! It comes at an affordable price and best of all….it is pet friendly. Everything worked out very well. Did I mention that we really miss our wheels???
Once we got settled into our room we made our way to Dock Street….the main street that runs adjacent to the Gulf where we found a great place to eat lunch.
We always ask the locals to recommend places to eat and Coconuts came highly recommended.
We pretty much had the place to ourselves and a nice table overlooking the water. Mike had a pulled pork sandwich and I had the coconut shrimp. Both plates came with coleslaw and french fries.
I must say my coconut shrimp was crazy good!! It came with a zesty orange sauce that really tasted wonderful. Not only was the food excellent but the local dolphins put on a pretty neat show for us.
They were swimming and jumping a pretty good ways out. Mike tried to get a good picture but it isn’t easy from such a distance.
After getting our tummies full we decided to walk off lunch and explore the Cedar Key area. We walked through many of the stores on Dock Street and enjoyed the awesome water views. Before going to Lower Suwannee Wildlife Refuge and other birding spots we stopped by our “cabin” for an afternoon siesta!!
More to come!!
