Hans and I, along with his brother and his wife, spent the afternoon in the quaint New England style village of MOUNT DORA. Its a lovely place with its outdoor restaurants, cafe's, antique shops, art galleries and romantic B & B's.
We strolled through town and had waffle cone ice creams.
On the day before, we went on a boat ride through the Dead River, which branches out of Lake Dora. Here we saw wonderful birds. I made travelogues of the birds that we saw there.

    The boat ride on Lake Dora would be especially fun for me, since I'm an avid birdwatcher.

    A tour on the Dora Canal and Dead River must be a wonderful experience! You have superb pictures of marsh birds!

    Here I am again. Wish I had you with me to identify some of the birds I saw in Fla. last week. I visited Mt. Dora for the first time.

    Hey, Lori, this looks like a great place to visit and to eat! The travelogues are wonderful....beautiful birds. Does Hansi go anywhere without his cameras?

    Looks like a great spot for some bird watching! But why is it the Dead River? Hopefully there isn't anything dead floating around....

    You're right - Mount Dora is a charming town and I enjoy the natural areas. But for the life of me I can't see why they call it "Mount." There's not a decent hill, much less a mountain, for hundreds of miles around.

    Great shot of the Dead River "Reflections." Haha, it's the Florida I would look for: nature, swamps, birds, peace and quiet. But where are aligators? :-)
