The Long Way Home

Micanopy is swampland and live oak, a one-street town with no stop light. To get there requires driving down bumpy, dusty roads dotted with cottages painted bright colors, their roofs canopied in Spanish moss.  For an afternoon, you can time-travel back about 80 years and forget the strip malls that take up a lot of central Florida space. It feels haunted;  there are definitely ghosts walking these streets.

It’s one thing I do love about the deep South, the moss is so beautiful.
