We just love our little piece of paradise in Cedar Key.
We always seem to have something to do whether it is riding bikes, walking, hanging out with friends, working on projects or going on excursions. We've been doing a lot of "excursioning" lately.
We have been talking about getting some kind of boat where we could navigate the "shallows". The waters around Cedar Key are not deep and there are tons of islands and areas to explore. We (especially I!) don't feel comfortable exploring in our blow-up Sea Eagle kayak because of the oyster beds. Dan researched different possibilities and this is what he came up with...

Once Dan got the motor, we took the Gheenoe out again to see how he liked it....it was another beautiful day on the water. We explored an island...
and played with the dolphins.
We must have seen about 20 dolphins that afternoon. Most of them were in pairs but we did see one huge pod of about 12. The really liked coming up to the boat and playing around us. At one point, they were about a foot away from us. It was very cool to watch.
Yep. I think that we will like our Gheenoe. There are so many areas around here that we want to explore and with the Gheenoe, we will be able to do that. We will still hold on to the Sea Eagle (for now) and leave the Gheenoe in Cedar Key.
We have seen some incredible sunrises and sunsets here.
Yep - it's going to be a good (and busy!) winter in Cedar Key.
