We wake up the next morning, and you’d have thought that Thursday was just a weird dream. The sky is bright blue with big fluffy clouds, the water is as calm as a pane of glass and there is NO wind. The storm actually dropped the temperature and the humidity is gone. It’s a picture perfect day here in Central Florida.
Cindy and I headed downtown to see if there was any cleanup we could help with after we had breakfast, but except for the beach clean-up which had all the city workers busy, there was nothing to do. Since most towns clean their beaches on a weekly basis, if today was your first day pulling into Cedar Key, you’d never even have known that a storm had blown through yesterday. It’s amazing how resilient this coastline is.
Amazing difference a day can make. This photo shows why its really good to let your mangrove trees grow to about 5-6′ in height. Imagine if that grassy area had a thick layer of mangroves how it would provide a natural break for the storm waves. The 2nd photo was taken Friday morning. The 1st photo was taken Thursday morning.
This is what the beach looked like yesterday afternoon during the storm surge.
This is what it looks like this morning while they were cleaning up the seaweed and grading out the sand.
Since I don’t have too much else to talk about, I’ll share some random photos I’ve taken over the last few weeks.
