So gorgeous and a looks like a wonderful place to get-away! I'm assuming this is where you spent your weekend!

Re your question on Cedar Key: Yes, it's an optical illusion...the boat is suspended by a hoist arrangement. :-) You were pulling my leg, right?

Nice to have you back safe and sound.

Funny how the place is similar to where I grew up in South Brittany France!
Spring must be a great time to visit !

Beautiful place! I use to dream of living by the beach until the Thai tsunami happened and now Japan. Dreams nowadays change so quickly. Amazing panorama!

The coast on the ocean is always more impressive and different from what we are familiar with. Beautiful place, gorgeous images.

I guess it is warmer where you are, and soon these beaches might have many tourist from the north too.
