A Haircut And A Parade

It was 65 degrees outside when we got up this morning—we are liking this Florida weather.  Windy all day but not as windy as our area of Montana was yesterday—90mph winds, portions of freeways and roads were closed, semi trucks blown off the road—nope not as windy.  The bay waters were very choppy though, glad we went kayaking yesterday.  Cedar Key has a great sidewalk system and we used those sidewalks to do our 4 mile hike this morning—works well!  IMG_1947Nice place for a rest stop.

Stopped at Sandy’s Produce stand and got some Plant City, FL strawberries—we have had some of these strawberries and some other kinds of strawberries.  The Plant City ones are the best.  We also got grapefruit, cantaloupe and watermelon.  I made homemade pizza last night—tried a new recipe for the dough and it was delicious.  Had leftover pizza for lunch.

I had thought about getting a hair cut using my friend Elaine’s hairdresser in Ocala.  But as usual I got antsy when the hair begins to get too long and didn’t want to go all the way to Ocala.  Since I needed some groceries I decided to just go to Chiefland, get groceries at Wal Mart and get my hair cut at a salon I noticed the first day we drove through there.  I hit it lucky this time—got a great haircut!

This afternoon we went into Cedar Key and watched the homecoming parade—yep, homecoming.  Seems Cedar Key doesn’t have a football team so they plan homecoming around basketball season.  For such a small town, the parade was fun--

IMG_1982We are in Gator land, too.

All in all a good day!  Tonight the resort was doing a chili feed—shouldn’t have gone there—enough said!


  1. I'm getting worried, in one short year you have gone from walking in the desert washes to sticking to the sidewalks. Once you get home you might have to drive into town to find a little concrete to walk.

    Sounds like you are having fun over there in Gator country.

  2. Just the kind of parade I would expect from Cedar Key-looks like a lot of fun!

  3. Trying to figure out what make that old truck is. It needs a paint job. With all the lakes around here they need that type of rescue unit

  4. There's nothing like getting up in the morning, opening the door and getting hit by a blast of warm air!
