Beautiful park: lots of longleaf pine forest. Great observation tower for the prairie; and a hiking/biking trail on the perimeter of the prairie.

By the time we got to Charlotte, it was 59 and ...

Micanopy is a typical, sleepy 1940's southern town with the spanish moss hanging from the trees and it doesn't appear to have been touched by modern civilization. The one little main street has been taken over by antique shops and a few artists. Just a neat place to spend an afternoon, getting away from the hustle and bustle. One interesting fact about Micanopy is that this is the ...
... river bank, but I missed the hissing shot. The craziest thing we saw was a guy using a rope swing to swing out and drop into the river about 100 yards from the ****** off gator. Everyone knows how many gators are in the river, but the crazy dude kept jumping in and climbing back up the tree for more. Hope nothing happened to him as the day drew on. Madness! I want to add that we finally have found a Boat Club ...
