‘Home to Meet God’ – 1960s Florida in Kodachrome

Gorgeous images from vacations in the Sunshine State

“…driving down there and being there alone at the end… I was happy, because he was finally getting what he wanted. He was going home, in a strange way. Home to meet God. Home to die in Florida. God lives in Florida, at least for Harry. Maybe for all of us God lives in Florida. Can that be true?”
