From Cedar Key
So now we're enjoying some down time on Florida's west coast -- in Cedar Key, a place neither of us has visited before. Today we explored the tiny old town and had lunch at Tony's Seafood Restaurant, which has the world's best clam chowder. No, really! They even won the championship in Rhode Island -- yes, Florida clam chowder took New England's top prize -- for three years straight, before retiring into the hall of fame. Afterward, more exploration, then shopping for provisions in the local market, then I bought boiled peanuts from an old fella sittin' under an umbrella singin' country music and playin' guitar. Just about a perfect day, I'd say!
