A tree in CEDAR KEY

A fishing net cast over a pole.
Seashells in the net.
(Let’s hope they are castaways &
weren’t taken live.)
Cheers at Christmas.
The necklace of Cedar Key islands tip-toeing into the Gulf of Mexico are where cedar forests were lumbered-out for the world’s pencils (think Faber pencils, etc.)
So I like it that the village of Cedar Key’s marina tree
isn’t using up a living one.
Muir fans know the Cedar Keys as the region where John
Muir regained his strength after his 1,000 mile walk to
the Gulf of Mexico. I wonder if in his knapsack on that trip he
kept his journal with the assist of a Faber cedar pencil.

PS–sorry I didn’t wait for Christmas. I have a problem with delayed gratification. 🙂
Hey, I just wanted to thank you for the presents! 🙂 (It wouldn’t let me email you on your other site.)
I haven’t done the book bloggers Secret Santa, but I have enjoyed it this year. 🙂
The two books you sent are perfect. 🙂 My Husband’s Sweethearts will fit in with the chick lit challenge I’m doing, and I’ll have to find a place for the folklore book, which sounds awesome. 🙂 Thanks! 🙂
