Every beach needs a playground to provide the kiddos something to do when they're tired of swimming or the water is full of sharks! Just kidding - sort of. I don't think there are sharks in these waters, but many places along the Florida coasts require one to be wary and watchful.

Two or our fellow bloggers have posted red telephone booths in the past couple of weeks, so I thought I'd put mine up, too. This one is found in Spanish Springs, behind the old sales office. I have no clue where it came from. It is not representative of phone booths in this country.

The Up The Creek Fish Camp & Grill sits next to Lake Sumter, and diners may eat outside overlooking the water. The gentleman sitting on the stool is a greeter, who is there to welcome you to this particular culinary experience.

The Cedar Key pier was the focal point of this small fishing village. People came to the pier to fish, to unload their wares such as sponges, to socialize, or just to sit in the sun and relax.
But one day a hurricane roared in from the Gulf of Mexico and devastated the pier. For years, it sat, a mess of broken boards and pilings.
Today, however, the pier has been rebuilt. Constructed of concrete and steel pilings driven deep into the ocean floor, it looks to be able to withstand anything Mother Nature can throw at it.
The people are back. It's not the same, of course; never will be. But it is solid and in its own way, beautiful.

From what we could see, Elzey, Florida doesn't consist of much more than this church. It is a United Methodist Church, established about 1850, although I don't think this was the original building. Elzey is located in north central Florida about 20 miles east of Cedar Key.
