"Here I am in my tent at the Mt.Dora Art Festival in beautiful Mt. Dora Fl. An estimated 250,000 people were expected to have visited the festival and it sure felt like it. There were so many wonderful artists with beautiful pieces I don't know how anyone could decide on what to purchase. One of the highlights of being there was meeting my TDIPT sister Janelle of Little Sister's Dolls! She is a runt like me as you can see by her pic(s)! The little town is so quaint and friendly with so many wonderful little shops and if I'm lucky enough I'd do this show again!"
*Tour of the town of Mt. Dora, FL*
Located in Lake County, which is smack dab in the heart of central FL., Mt. Dora is a beautiful little town nestled in among a chain of lakes that host bass fishing tournaments, speed boat races, leisure boating, and the renowned annual art festival.
Mt. Dora is draped in huge old southern Oaks, which just add to its charm and character. Large Victorian homes also dot the landscape downtown, and there are also cafes, art galleries and quaint little shops.
It's only about 15 miles from where I live, and I was thrilled in the chance to drive over and meet Carol, and see first-hand, her remarkable works of art!
Lakeside Inn - a beautiful old Victorian B & B
A dock that leads out to where one can take a ride on a sea plane, which you can kind of see in the background
