We made a reservation at the Williston RV Resort, in Williston Florida. We drove the slow road instead of the interstate.
We were greeted with this fine patrol car!
Kind of makes you feel like you have arrived at Mayberry.
Our sweet little lady all set up.
We were right across from the covered bridge.
Over the long weekend we took day trips to several surrounding areas. Years ago when my sweet hubby and I were dating we used to drive up to Cedar Key, an old fishing community on the coast.
Beautiful marshlands as you approach the island.
Some of the buildings in town were almost falling down.
This was the old hotel, which was closed obviously.
During our dating days we would eat at a restaurant called Johnsson's. They had the biggest best fried shrimp you ever tasted. And a specialty salad called Palm Salad made with heart of the palm cabbage. The dressing was made with peanut butter and sherbert.
As Johnson's is no more, we ate at the SeaBreeze.
Our view out of the window.
Cedar Key is a very old town. The cemetery is dated from the 1800's.
I remember sweet hubby telling me a lot of the tiny plots were from a time when the town was nearly wiped out from Typhoid fever.
It's been many years since we visited Cedar Key, and it was a nice walk down memory lane. The streets though, were full of tourists which took away the quaintness of the town we remembered. I loved seeing again, but I will be happy to keep my memories of years gone by in tack.
Next time I will share with you a place where we ate that should be rated 5 star!
