Following a dolphin into the Number 2 Channel
Number 3 Bridge
Low tide kept be far from the big pine with the eagle's nest on Scale Key.
Landed on the island 2 keys north of Scale Key. I heard voices. Thought they were coming from a fishing boat. As I got out of my kayak, I saw it was a group of kayakers right behind be. Jeez, you can't land someplace else when I need to pee?
The group walked the other way
Black skimmers, skimming.
Landed at 12:26. Let the tide come in, and allowed time for my room to be ready
Patio, not my usual balcony. This Cedar Key trip was a late Friday afternoon decision. This time of year, Park Place raises its prices. I called Pirates Cove and Mermaids Landing, which are less expensive, but they were sold out. Park Place's website states 2 night stays are required February through May. I asked if I could just stay for one night. Helps to be a frequent guest.
There were five or six osprey on the water tower
Sandy's Produce. I come for the seafood.
I forgot butter, so finally bought a Cannon's product. No relation. Sandy travels to Plant City for her produce, as well as a variety of Cannon's goods.
Tight quarters, so it is difficult to sneak up on them
Landed at 6:45
Dinner of pasta with clams and sea trout. In lots of Cannon's butter. I do not recall having sea trout before. Red color, very tasty.
