  • Playin' hide-and-seek on the water

     Hey, everyone, sorry I missed some weeks–been a little busy with kids' ball games and praying for the wind to not blow the water out.

    ¥ou get it, situational things of that sort. Oh also it's hard to type with your fingers crossed that the gators will win. Ha ha yeah white knuckles and all, it didn’t help. 

    As far as the fishing goes, it’s been pretty consistent with a hot spot here and there when the weather settles–the usual for this time of year.

    Month of November

    Artist of the Month
    The Cedar Keyhole’s Artist of the Month for November is Patti Fox. Fox is a potter whose work is very organic. She mostly hand-builds her pottery using an iron-rich clay and impressing designs into the wet clay. She leaves the pieces unglazed, resulting in a rich, high-fired red oxide color and a very tactile surface. Fox creates a wide range of ceramic items using this technique.
