marjorie kinnan rawlings home

We visited the home of author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings in Cross Creek.
She is best known for her novel The Yearling about a boy who adopts 
an orphaned fawn and for which she won the Pulitzer Prize in 1939.

Unfortunately the home was not open for tours 
so I had to peek my camera up against window screens!

I like to think the area hasn't changed too much since she lived there.
A few more homes and the paving of the road perhaps,
but it's still considered rural Florida and for that I love it.


  1. what a great place
    i could live ther
    i think ;^))

    have a fine day!
