Cedar Key's Lighthouse
Dogs, kids and adults all got into their boats this afternoon and headed to Seahorse Key, for an event that only happens four times a year.
Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge hosted an open house of their lighthouse station.
Pam Darty, the Refuge Ranger says, in order to not to interrupt nesting birds and other wildlife, visitors are only allowed on very specific times.
"Once they raise their young and they fledge and go then we come back in to the lighthouse and celebrate."
Visitors like 9 year-old Dorian Sjolund were amazed at the sights from the 54-foot tall dune.
"And then when you step up there you could see all of Cedar Key and all the houses and tons of these colorful birds flying around."
Toni Collins author of the book, "Cedar Key Light Station," told kids the history of the lighthouse, dressed in that period of time.
The light house will open again in October.
