One of our favorite things to do is to hang out at the beach, floating the hours away on our rafts or just chillin' on the sand. Everyone here has gotten quite used to seeing our decorated bikes with us sporting our back-pack beach chairs and baskets full of coolers of refreshing beverages.
Cedar Key has a fairly new pier that is huge and is always busy with fishermen and pelicans any time of day or night...depending on the tide. That's one thing you have to watch around here - whether boating or fishing, the tides are important! The pier is right on Dock Street, close to the little park and beach and most of the restaurants and shops that make up "downtown." It's all a mere 1.5 miles from our rv park - easy biking and walking distance, which really floats my boat!

an RV isn't really conducive to much shopping anyway. There is a small grocery store that even sports a meat counter, well kind of! You can find fresh baked bread, produce, and actually just about everything you'd need. From Thursday to Sunday there is a nice produce stand and many of the cafes keep these same hours. The Pyrate Isle is a great little sauce store where Bill found the makings for some fabulous ribs he cooked up one night.
Just up the street is a Dollar Store that has everything you need to set trail for a Hash! Of course, there's a liquor store and well, I guess that's just about it! We tend to hang out at The Big Deck for a couple of reasons...our new friend, Amy, works there, they allow dogs (good for Maria and Brian), and they actually have music, good food, and a great beer selection! We've been twice to the Island Room (kind of pricey but they have amazing specials on Mondays and Thursdays) and lately we've been frequenting the Island Hotel.
And last, but not least, we spend most everyday hanging out at the Low-Key Hideway Tiki Bar. It is literally stumbling distance from where we park. The sunset views are the very best, the beer selection pretty good, and the bar-keep extraordinary! I have mentioned Pat and Cindy in most every blog I've written about Cedar Key - they are one of "us"- full-timers who just happen to be temporarily parked right now, taking some time out to have a new and different experience. There have been many nights where we crowd-sourced our dinners on their gas bbq, some of these were quite epic!
