Spring has Sprung

A lot of our friends come back to Cedar Key RV Resort year after year and we like the community feel that the park has.   You can be as social (or not!) as you want.  There always seems to be something going on with it’s a planned park activity or a spur of the moment outing.

A few weeks ago,  we celebrated a milestone birthday for our friend (and park manager!), Lesa.  She turns 50 in May and since most of us will not be here then, decided to celebrate her birthday the 50th day of the year (Feb 19th)!  We wanted it to be a surprise and we told her that it was a belated Valentine’s Day celebration.  She was so into making all sorts of things “Valentine-y” like cheesecake stuffed strawberries and a huge red velvet cake.  She is also very scared of clowns so of course we had to play on that!
She was so surprised and so scared!  She ran out of the clubhouse screaming!  It was a hoot!

We enjoyed a wonderful prime rib dinner with so many delicious sides.  We had beverages galore including some homemade “hooch” in two flavors…..root beer and peppermint.  We danced and laughed and danced and laughed some more.  Lesa was thrown in the pool - fully clothed - before the night was over.  It was a great, great night.

We are getting good use of our boat now.  We’ve taken it out several times in the past several weeks. It’s always a fun time and very relaxing.

More friends!

And, even more friends!

Yes, this is very relaxing!
We always see wildlife!

One thing that I really like about going out in the Gulf off the coast of Cedar Key is that there are so many islands to explore.  Some are part of the Wildlife Refuge and don’t allow admittance past the beach; while you can explore others.  Some are large, others are small.  All (that we have been to) are nice.

When we are in the Gulf, we have always seen dolphins.  These two were especially playful and we watched them off and on for at least 30 minutes.

This past weekend, I went to the Trenton Quilt  Festival with some friends.  There were hundreds of quilts around the town.

I love how it looks like this is waving in the wind


Made from polyester leisure suits from the 70's!


Quilts were everywhere!

Love this one!

Seeing all of them sure did give me some ideas for a winter project next year.

Life is good!


  1. Wow, those white pelicans are amazing. You got some great photos.

    We're also enjoying our boat and have had some wonderful days out on the water.

  2. Exploring the gulf sounds like so much fun, glad you are enjoying your boat!

  3. Spring is in the air... just ask the dolphins!

  4. Fun, Fun, Fun... Can't wait to see all of you!!!
