Cedar Key Florida’s First Pirate’s Fest (2013)

Cedar Key Florida has always been the place to visit and enjoy all the natural wonders. When our families visited Cedar Key my cousins and I thought we were in “Sunshine Heaven.” 

There was swimming, picnicking, boating, searching for shells, (I had a sand dollar from there for 25 years and many shells) eating seafood, Island hopping (with beautiful sand and salty water all around). We found driftwood on an Island many years ago and gave it to a local man who made things from wood. At twelve (12) years old we felt special about giving the wood to the artist so he could make something beautiful.

I remember the waves to the Island that day were choppy, but that did not bother us, as we held tight until we made to our dream destination. My cousins and I went there without our parents’ permission. They thought we were at the park swimming, but there we were flying across the waves in a boat that we knew nothing about. And, we made it back to shore without getting into trouble.

First Pirates's Fest September 2013

Those were wonderful days, and when I feel the need to spoil myself---I go back there to visit even for one day. I loved the boardwalk and visiting the stores and especially eating seafood. I’ve attended many parties in Cedar Key of my friends who always chose my favorite place to visit.

In September last year Cedar Key had their first Pirate’s Fest, and I am so sorry I missed it. However, a very nice person filmed it so I can share with you.
