We woke up to this. Red and yellow ‘amoebas’ are coming! Lots and lots of rain. Later, purple was added and we had some rough bands of weather.
But we don’t let a little rain (storm) stop us. I mean yes, it stopped us from fishing, but not from enjoying the day. Seemed like a perfect day to find a local spot for breakfast.
I got the ‘biscuit barn special (eggs, hash browns, bacon and sausage) and it was mighty tasty while Eric created his own skillet entre (minus the skillet).
Our biscuits came out 4 minutes later. Our waitress said they were backed up and they would be our shortly. Aarrgghh. They were tall, fluffy, golden brown, butter coated, life-changing, great with honey and steaming hot………………yep, forgot the photo.
But I got my selfie. This was a popular place for Saturday morning!
We needed plan B for today’s activities. Cedar Key was fairly close and became our destination of choice. First stop was the Cedar Key Museum State Park.
Cute little museum for this small community.
They have some interesting history. One of their major industries had been pencil-making, until they deforested the land.
On this site is the homeplace of St. Clair Whitman. He was interested in the history of Cedar Key and this museum is the result of his interest. We were able to enter the house for a self-guided tour.
And we can’t forget this important part of any household, pre-indoor plumbing.
Since the rain had stopped, we walked this short nature trail. They had some interesting signs for key Florida plants (Live Oak tree, yaupon bush and the sabal palm) along the path.
John Muir also visited Florida and stayed on Cedar Key as he recovered from a bout with malaria.
Reading these signs, there is mention of a 1000 mile walk from Indiana. What??? I had to google it. Short version of the story:
- Worked in Indianapolis at a wagon wheel factory after being in Canada with his brother.
- An accident changed the course of his life: a tool slipped and struck him in the eye.
- After being confined 6 weeks in a darkened room to regain his sight, he determined to be true to himself and follow his dream of exploration and study of plants.
There’s more to come from Cedar Key: food, plants & art! Hang tight.

Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine
but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

Finally I’ve found something that helped me.
I believe what you composed was actually very reasonable.
However, think on this, suppose you wrote a catchier title?
I am not saying your content is not solid., however what if you added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Crystal River –
2019 1.1 – Darden Travels is a little
vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and
see how they create post titles to grab people to click.
You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could make
your blog a little bit more interesting.
