    I love iced tea. It's my drink. And unlike many in the south, I choose to drink mine unsweetened. Many southerners have been raised on "sweet tea" and it's fine.

    Grits are a mainstay of southern cooking, especially for breakfast. Made from coarsely ground hominy, they cook up into a filling and very satisfying little cereal-like dish. Some folks will tell you that they are similar to Cream of Wheat, but I vehemently disagree. I hate COW and love grits.Cooking grits is very easy, and you should just follow...

    Miccosukee, Florida is not Las Vegas. Hell, it's not even Los Alamos. Partying in Miccosukee at night is pretty much a "Los Cause".

    About 6 miles outside of Miccosukee is Bradley's Country Store, home of Bradley's Country sausage. The fine folks at Bradley's (ie the Bradley family) have made great sausage for almost 80 years.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I travel, especially abroad, folks think that living in Florida means that I spend my life sipping cool drinks under palm trees on forever warm and sunny days. And while we do have pretty decent weather most of the time, we do live in NORTH Florida. It has actually snowed in Miccosukee before, we usually get a 'blizzard" (maybe half an inch of snow) every 20 years or so. The last measurable snow we had was in 1989, so we may be due.

    We greeted 2008 with some seriously cold weather, at least for Florida. Take a look at the accompanying (other) photo. The number on the left (24) was the temperature in Fahrenheit at the time. (this is my outside temperature monitor) For those of you unfamiliar with the Fahrenheit scale, that is 8 degrees below freezing.

    So, if you visit in winter, don't leave your jacket or sweater at home, you may need it.... but you won't need it for long, I promise. but until it warms up, find someone to snuggle up to after the sun goes down. ;)

  • Cromartie Road, true rural beauty

    The road east of Miccosukee, heading towards Reeves Landing and Lake Miccosukee features some of the most serene and beautiful rural farmland in Leon County.I'd suggest that any Sunday walk, bicycle trip or drive in the area of Miccosukee include a trip down Cromartie Road.

  • Gone Fishing part II, Lake Miccosukee

    If you can't get invited to fish privately, or if you're hot to actually go out in a boat, you can mosey on down to Lake Miccosukee. LM is a huge (maybe a hundred square miles) swampy lake just east of Miccosukee. There are boats for rent at the shore's edge (see my Reeves Landing/Fish Camp tip). To my knowledge, you can buy your state fishing...

Miccosukee Favorites

  • Old Cemetaries

    All around the Miccosukee area are numerous old and almost forgotten cemetaries. Many of these are "black" cemetaries, created in the days when white and black people lived and died in separate circles. For what it's worth, cemetaries remain substantially segregated. But, nobody seems too upset about it.... it may be that nobody is interested in...
