We stayed at the Cedar Key Bed and Breakfast which is owned and operated by Alice, a delightful lady who really makes you feel like you are a guest at her home.
Since it was a special day, we booked the Honeymoon Cottage.
As you can imagine, the Captain's first reaction when we entered the room was
"This isn't a guy's place."
And I had to agree :-)
Very Victorian, very frilly
but also charming and comfortable.
We wandered around the grounds
where there were little nooks and crannies with
chairs and flowers everywhere
How many ways can you say delightful!
This is how close we were to the water.
We walked through the town where quiet takes on a new meaning.
Not a Mickey to be found for miles!
Looking down the main street...
Just peaceful and serene
There is a great fishing pier, complete with pelicans
and some nice shops where we
found some eclectic artwork
We had world famous chowder for lunch at Tony's where the food was so good
I forgot to take a picture!
But did take a selfie at the pier:-)
And one of the Captain too!
Kayaking, sailing, fishing, boat rides, biking, hiking, golf carts...
everything within walking distance
and we were only there for one night!
While sitting on the porch at the B&B enjoying a glass of wine we met some new friends from the UK, and after sharing some great conversation they joined us for dinner at the Island Room.
This is a beautiful restaurant right on the water and the perfect
place to catch the sunset.
I ended up having such a wonderful day, meeting new friends, seeing new sights...
sometimes life can just surprise you with pure simplicity.

The next morning breakfast was served here.
Each couple has their own little table!
The cookie jar was always full and the fridge always stocked. Can't wait to return!

For my knitting friends, Alice recommended a book "Spinning Forward" by Terri DuLong who is a local author. The book is about a lady who opens a yarn shop in Cedar Key and stays at the B&B.
I've already read it and am looking for the sequel!
Until next time...
