This or That and a Trip to Cedar Key

It is raining cats and dogs this morning.  Thankfully, all the animals have been fed and watered and I even picked a few more green beans before it started dumping outside.  I'll be canning those babies up some time today!

Also on today's agenda... cleaning house.  I was also going to do some grocery shopping but I think I'll wait until it stops raining.  IF it stops raining *smile*.  I'm always happy for the rain.  It does wonders for the vegetable garden!  Looks like I'll have to declutter my office desk now *sigh*, but it's long overdo so now's as good a time as any!

Country Boy worked on our anniversary so the following day, we took a little drive northwest of us to a little island off the west coast (of Florida) to a town called Cedar Key.  We were going to feast on some seafood and enjoy the views!

There's a fabulous fishing pier there.  Country Boy was wishing he had brought his fishin' poles!  ESPECIALLY after watching a guy pull a fish in... poor Country Boy!

Below is a lovely courtyard for the Harbour Master motel that is above their Dilly Dally Gally gift shop.  I think it would be a fabulous place to stay as it sits over and looks directly out at the water.

Can you see the bird getting a drink from the bird bath?

Bird Conference Center!
 Also in the courtyard were several of these large, rusty anchors.

We ate upstairs while enjoying the beautiful view!

After a delicious meal, we headed over to the pier for a bit of exercise before heading home.  The sun was quickly sinking below the horizon.

Fishermen checking their crab traps...

It was a lovely way to celebrate our anniversary!

It's no longer raining cats and dogs, just a lovely drizzle now.  I guess I need to tackle my chores now!
