We recently set out to Ocala to go on the Silver River. We packed up and headed out with Gin, Syl, Maggie and Vel. Dan rigged a thinga-ma-bob on our Gheenoe to tow Maggie and Vel's kayaks up the river so that they wouldn't have to paddle 5+ miles to the head springs.

We came across this road block on the river...
|and played limbo!|

We floated back (for the most part!) and took in the scenery....

Dan and I took the boat out in the Gulf the next nice day we had. We wanted to find an island to relax and chill. Here's what we found....
as an added bonus, this guy stood watch over us!
It was another gorgeous day in Cedar Key!
We have also been keeping an eye on the Great Horned Owl's nest in town...

I've been sewing like crazy and have made quite a few projects this winter. I can't show pictures of most items as they are gifts. But, I can show off this....I volunteered to help make a quilt for Hospice.
It's not exactly the colors I would have chosen but the fabric was donated and am quite sure that whoever receives it will appreciate it. I free-motion quilted stars in each block. This was my first attempt at this type of quilting (I just learned how to sew in December!) and need more practice but am glad I was able to help out. Many thanks to Bunny for binding it!
We had our last after-dinner walk (well at least for this season!) in Cedar Key the other night and took a few pictures to look back on when I miss it!

We had a great winter in Cedar Key but we are ready to roll and are looking forward to our summer travels!
