Christmas 2018 family gift was a fishing day in Cedar Key with friend and fishing Guide extraordinaire Jason Lowe who is the owner of JLowes Guide Service.
It’s not the easiest task to schedule 7 adults, one toddler and one guide, who is soon to be a grandpa, all at once for a whole day. This includes one pregnant woman, 2 men who live out of town and the ridiculous schedules for the rest of the crew.
However we did it and April 27th was our day.
The toddler aka Jack was uninvited and spent the day with his PoPo and Mimi.
We arrived at the Cedar Key ramp at 9am and the day began.
It was a beautiful Spring-ish day. The sun was shining and the temperatures in the morning were cool.
We began with a boat ride around cedar key. Jason pointed out places of interest and we stopped off at an island to view a very old cemetery.
It was a beautiful island
The mosquitos almost took us away.
We saw the lighthouse
And the Manatees were a highlight of the day.
The family loves to have their pictures taken. Not.
We picnic’ed on North Key. Fried chicken, chips, watermelon and brownies are always a hit.
Jason shared that North Key was once the possible site for a leper colony. Can you even believe it?
Courtney and Mom were dropped off after our sightseeing morning and the boys and I went out fishing for the rest of the day.
The fish were not abundant but we have enough for a great Mothers Day of fish tacos for the family when they come to visit.
Thanks Jason for a great day on the water.
Thanks family for spending the whole day together. You are loved 💜
Merry Christmas to us.
