Down home in Walton County
Back away from the beach a ways, northward along the warped and cracked county roads that lead into thick woods and cypress swamps, lies the backcountry of Walton County. Today we took a little spin along the floodplain of the Choctawatchee River basin and explored parts of this diverse county that we hadn't yet seen before. It was a trip back in time, thank goodness.
To say that the traditional South is alive and well in post-modern America turns out to be the understatement of the year. I'm real glad to see that it's a kicking and a stomping here in these later days. Y'all come visit now, ya hear?
