Reflections on a post - Lake Sumter Landing

Ready for a parade

Located in the downtown area, just a block from the dock, the inhabitants of this house appear ready for a parade, setting their chairs out in order. Or, maybe they just like to sit and people-watch. I'm not sure Cedar Key has parades.

Condo sign

This was the sign next to the door of the condo we rented in Cedar Key. Makes one wonder, heh? Looks like Jim is the "old crab."

Outdoor restrooms in Lake Sumter Landing

The Villages tries to make residents and visitors comfortable. Thus, Lake Sumter Landing offers some very nice, colorful outdoor restrooms.

Sneed Chapel - Orange Lake

Sneed Chapel is located on Highway 441, north of Ocala, in Orange Lake, Florida. It has been here for many years, and appears to be a family-run operation.

Ahoy! A mast reaching for the sky!

Restored 1949 Ford

Found this jewel parked at the town square in Lake Sumter Landing. In my last year of high school, several students had bought 1949 Fords and then customized them in a variety of ways, which usually included twin exhaust pipes and lowering the rear end.

I saw a 1949 Ford convertible for sale on eBay - nicely customized. It can be yours for only $17,750 USD.

A little balcony will do

I found this staircase on a building in downtown Eustis, Florida. What I especially liked about it was the "balcony."

Condos for sale

This condo and several others sit about a block back from the water in downtown Cedar Key. Several are for sale and as I recall the asking price was just under $300K. Some have a view of the water but others are blocked by another set of condos.

Dancing to the music - Lake Sumter Landing

This old house

We found this gem in McIntosh, Florida. There are two versions: color and black and white.

Sunset from years past

This photo was taken a number of years ago on 35 mm film. The image was scanned from that photo.
