Low Tide in Cedar Key

It was another absolutely beautiful day!  While walking around Cedar Key and considering places to photograph, I decided to get some shots from a pier on a back channel.

This shot shows the channel at low tide.  In the image you can see remnants of the Florida Railroad which was the first railroad to connect the east and west coasts of Florida, running from Fernandina to Cedar Key.

This is an image of the same area but from a different perspective.   At low tide you can see the base of some of the supports.   These support structures would have been placed here around 1860.

At 156 miles in length, it was the longest railroad to be completed in Florida before the start of the American Civil War.
