New friends in Cedar Key

posted: Jul 16, 09:59 AM

During our last update, John was feeling worn down and discouraged by an uncooperative weather forecast. However, John’s mood lifted yesterday when he met Cedar Key librarian Molly Jubitcz. Molly introduced John to Bob and Jeri Treat. Bob is a small boat builder and enthusiast. They also introduced John to Hugh Horton, a boat builder and author. John enjoyed dinner with everyone and stayed the night at the Treat’s home. He had a really enjoyable day and is so appreciative of the Treat’s hospitality.

Today Hugh Horton is meeting John at his boat to interview him for an article. John is probably going to head to a nearby island in the afternoon. He will have to wait and watch the weather (perhaps for a few days) until it is favorable for the open water crossing to Crystal River.
