I find that, at best, folks have stopped through Tally to get some gas. It’s pretty off-the-grid.

It’s the kind of town that you have to know where to go, but if you do, there are beautiful gardens, tasty food, and a bit of history, too. And, of course, you have FSU, FAMU, and the capital there.

Once you’ve been to a North Florida beach, you’re pretty spoiled — though pockets are getting more crowded these days and we’re a bit worried about the implications of the attention and influx of folks.

I love going to Tally in late November — the first of the camellias are in bloom and the weather tends to be cool and crisp. The spring is gorgeous in a different way — the dogwoods, azaleas, and last of the camellias create a blanket of pinks, purples, and whites all over town.

Many thanks for reading, Jonathan, and the compliment!
