Cedar Key is an artsy town. Two galleries, funky colors everywhere, signage, art-ed walls on homes and businesses and lots of found-object gardens. Yes!!
This 'gallery' is a mystery. An old, unused building right downtown on 2nd Street, which is the main street. Last year I noticed a few found object sculptures nailed to the wall. This year more, including a painting. So far I apparently haven't asked the right person, as I have not found out who the artist/s are.
The Dollar General store is a big deal here. 12 miles out of town on Route 24 on the 'mainland' it is the biggest store nearby. There is the very neat and a bit pricey Market At Cedar Key right in town and a 7-11 type liquor store as well. But for 'stuff' off to the Dollar General. I found the donut mug featured in this collage there, A true 'gotta have it' item and for only a buck, why not indulge?

I love the look of the Blue Desert Cafe, but have yet to eat here. It's a tiny place. Reviews say the food is good but everything takes a really long time. Those in the know bring a bottle of wine and are happy to hang out.
