A day trip to the town of Cedar Key

Cedar Key beachfront

A cool start to the day, but no wind. After a lazy start to the day we went for a drive to Cedar Key, a small picturesque town right on the coast.

What a nice spot! It has a very small-town feel, with lots of accommodations and restaurants. Touristy but  still somewhat rural. It's a beautiful setting, with white sand beach and palm trees. Free parking was easy to find before noon.

Lots of places built up on piers, to avoid flood damage

There's a large town dock area, complete with public washrooms.

The view from the docks of backs of businesses on the main street

After a fair bit of walking we settled in for lunch with a view at the Rusty Rim restaurant.

Lobster bisque soup was great. Gator bites and fries just ok, but you have to do it once



The map likely looks odd, but after touring Cedar Key we went over to Gainesville to find an Office Depot with internet.  A long boring and mostly wasted drive, as we later found we could get free internet at the Chiefland library, not far from our campground. They even have a Walmart there.
