These were all scanned from photographs of Cedar Key, circa 1997. My late husband made most of them and I scanned the photographs into my computer. Although some of the buildings have had face lifts or been painted, the town still looks very much the same now. Furthermore, I think these photos, despite their imperfections, managed to capture the light and color of the town (which remain unchanged, despite surface tweakings).
This little building is still there, but last time I saw it it wasn't an ice cream stand anymore. I was sad that it had been repainted.
This restaurant is still there and is still a great place to have a meal while sitting right over the Gulf.
And, of course, the Captain's Table---where you can watch the sunset sink into the Gulf---is still there. It's one of my favorite places on earth. The last couple of times I was there the pier was closed, but maybe that's changed by now....
A scene from Cedar Key's Main Street. Despite the (very cool) old cars, it was actually only 10 years ago!
