This past weekend, I drove up to Gainesville to see what changes had taken place since attending university there. Rolling into town at twilight, the first rains of summer greeted me, and provided a backdrop to the city of trees. I had forgotten how beautiful is that part of north central Florida.
An Argus Bean toy camera sat on the dashboard, ready to document any discoveries of Old Florida lazing down some country road. My friend and I found the past in places like Cedar Key on the Gulf and Micanopy, lost in time near mysterious Paynes Prairie.
Day trips are great for pulling you out of the ordinary.
