The October Open House, the first since the hurricane, attracted fewer visitors than usual. The trail down to the beach side of the island was destroyed and the cliff further eroded, making it necessary to build a longer new trail that is more difficult to walk.
Thanks to Friends' member Ann Kamzelski for the photos which she took while volunteering at the October Open House.
It is important for visitors to note that Seahorse Key is an island almost 3 miles from Cedar Key. Access is only by boat. There are no amenities, such as food or water on the island. Restroom facilities are limited.
Should there be a medical or other emergency requiring professional assistance or evacuation, response times could be lengthy.
Please plan with this in mind. Seahorse Key is wonderful, but it is not a walk in the proverbial park.
