Good friends are a rare commodity. We’ve been blessed with several. Four of them came to visit this past week. Jerry and Cheryl whom we work with at Lake In Wood came at week’s beginning on their way north. Christine and Jay, our best friends from Pennsylvania drove 1200 miles to visit and soak up the Florida weather. NOT! Jerry and Cheryl got tired of the cold and left a day earlier than their planned week. Chris and Jay put up with three days of rain out of their four day stay. We were veklempt but cannot control Mother Nature. What we were able to do between raindrops, cloudy skies and cold however was to visit Cedar Key. The town is an artsy little hideaway about 60 miles due west of Ocala, jutting out into the Gulf of Mexico. It’s known as a sleepy little drinking town with a fishing problem. Had he gone down the Gulf Coast instead of the right side, Hemingway would have loved it here. It’s much better explained in pictures. More when the weather clears.
