We Are FINALLY to Cabbage Key!…
We never finished our little excursion to Cabbage Key! So lets go back shall we…and see what we can find on this quaint island.
After landing on this small island resort, you are led from the docks to the Cabbage Key Inn/Restaurant. A funky place, so let’s take a look inside…
Located in the Old House, the “Open-Air” restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 365 days a year.
The main room is nestled among live Cuban laurels dripping with moss. Previous visitors have taped thousands of one-dollar bills to every surface. You can ask your server for a black marker and tape to add yours to the collection. So fun!
The front room is the old porch with a view of the marina and sound. As you look around you see antique fishing gear, classic Cabbage Key photographs and replicas of tarpon, snook and other game fish that make the Florida waters world famous.
Known by many as “the bar with all the money on the walls”, the Cabbage Key bar has been serving up drinks to boaters for over 60 years. With active fire places, original hardwood floors and Cypress walls, the bar and the formal dinning room make up the other two dining locations.
What we loved about this setting, the charming slice of Old World Style Florida…the way it used to be. You basically step back in time.
After a great lunch, we walked the nature trail and viewed the wildlife the way nature intended. As you explore the island you’ll discover the natural beauty of years ago.
The Water Tower…we climbed up to the top for some great views of mother nature.
We were making our way back to catch our boat back to the mainland, and this is what I spotted. An otter getting into one of the fishing boat’s live bait well. What a little stinker! This was so fun catching him red-handed. He caused quite a stir with the fishermen after I captured this photo. Let’s just say, they weren’t too happy with him…smile.
Oh, another cute furry friend…but this one is so much sweeter. Isn’t he just beautiful?! He is waiting for mommy and daddy to get done eating at the restaurant.
Saying our goodbye…to Cabbage Key Island…as we pull out of the dock.
I hope you enjoyed our destination today. It was a little sensory delight for us.
