Hi all, This week we visit “M” and my “M” stands for Micanopy Florida, pronounced Mick-can-oh'-pee.
Micanopy is such a quaint little town to visit. It is located just South of Gainesville, Florida off I75. If you are visiting Florida make Micanopy one of your “must see” places!
Seminole Chief Micanopy
You should Google Chief Micanopy. He was a very interesting man in Florida’s history.
Herlong Mansion is a lovely B&B. Here is a link if you are interested in staying there: http://www.herlong.com/
You may have read in one of my previous post that I am a huge fan of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. Her books speak to my soul. Marjorie’s homestead at Cross Creek is not far from Micanopy so you might as well drive a little further and take in her place while you are visiting Micanopy. A slice of rural Florida at its finest, it too is worth the drive!

I know you may think this was a short visit but I have left you with some wonderful links to check out. I hope you do!
Until next time! ~Ames
