  • The Cape San Blas lighthouse, located 12-miles south of the city of Port St. Joe on the south point of the St. Joseph Peninsula, is no stranger to the effects of erosion. First lighted in 1849, the lighthouse fell down during a gale in 1851. The light was rebuilt in 1856 but destroyed two months later.

  • August

    Artist of the Month
    The Cedar Keyhole’s Artist of the Month for August is Joni Hoffman. Hoffman is principally a wood carver. Her carvings of duck decoys, herons, pelicans, egrets, as well as whimsical dogs and cats, are intricately rendered and then painted in appropriate colors. While Hoffman considers herself largely a carver, she also creates drawings, etchings, paintings and walking sticks. The walking sticks are carved local woods, highly embellished and fitted with bells, which serve to alert bears that humans are in the area.

  • The Salty Needle Quilt Shop opened its doors to a small group of kids for a sewing camp that ran a total of five days, Aug. 4-8, sewing something new and exciting each day. The children got to shop in the store for material needed for their projects, adding their very own touch to everything they completed.
    Projects included: a pillow, chicken pin cushion, draw string bag, teddy bear and outfit, shorts and designed T-shirt.  Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Bunny were amazing, patient and instilled a new love into all that attended.
