The first time I visited Cemetery Point Park in Cedar Key, FL, it was a foggy, cool morning. It looked mysterious in the gloom, with birds coming in and out of the trees and cove.
The park is essentially a boardwalk that threads its way between the cemetery and the #3 channel. Vegetation is mostly black mangrove, scrub pine and palms. A wide variety of birds forage in the shrubbery and the mudflats during low tide.
The last day I returned was a gorgeous, sunny day and the views were spectacular.
As we prepare to receive our first major snowstorm of the year, I’m grateful that I had a week of warmth and sun to get me through the months ahead.
