Cedar Key 5-4-14

I like waking up in Cedar Key.  The white pelicans are from later in the day.
7:26 am tour of Mermaids Landing




Breakfast, the ever continuing Yak Tales composing, good wi fi at the Landing, check out, and on to City Park
 Underway just before 10 am



 

 

 


 

 


 



 




Dolphins at the Number 2 Channel

A brief break from the dolphins. Gulls, black skimmers and oyster catchers on the sandbar


 


 


 

10 dolphins in and near the Number 2 Channel.  I have never seen so many, here. 


Spent over an hour hanging with them


 

 
 

 
 It was the annual Small boat meet
 
 Landed at 12:55..  Downloaded the morning's photos.  Tried to get on the web. Unable to.
 
 On the bike
 

A short ride.  To Tony's Seafood.

 
 Clam chowder
Clam strips. Better than Mrs. Paul's.  Or even, Ho Jo's.
 Tony's chowder won a taste contest in Rhode Island, so it calls it self world champion.
Rhode Island, pffft. About as big as Cedar Key.  Although, it does have the world's best architecture professor at the Rhode Island School of Design.  My cousin, Charlie .

Coming out of one of my spoonbill spots. If I had a camera on my head a bit earlier, I would have had a picture of 10 plus busting out of the mangroves

 


The dolphins were back!











 Landed at 6:10
 Stop for a few more pics before the Number  Bridge and back to the mainland.
