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.
