Recap of my Trip Part 3

We begin day three with a little trip to Eustis, Florida.

As we were walking down the street, my eye was immediately drawn to this antique mail box. How cool is this??

I believe this cool community stage (and swimming pool in the back) are from the 1920s.

Peter read a review in the paper about this place so we decided to try it.

The view from our table...awesome.

This sandwich was GOOD!

After lunch, we explored a bit of Eustis...then drove to Mount Dora to window shop and see the lighting of the Christmas lights.

This hotel, The Lakeside Inn, is over 100 years old.

I think this would be a cool place to stay!

View from the lobby...

I've been to Mount Dora before and really love it there because
of all the old buildings.

Looks like a neat place to have some coffee!

Naturally, I fell head over heals in love with this house.

We decided to give our feet a rest and have some dinner while we waited for it to get dark. We went into a pub for a quick dinner which turned out to be not so quick but the chili was good. And warm!

We continued window shopping and you know me, I had to take pictures of things that caught my eye. Yes, E.T. was for sale. I never thought of E.T. as a Christmas decoration...

Now these were funny! I almost bought a set!

The tropical theme of this tree really made me smile!

There were literally thousands of lights all over town...

Here's that gorgeous house again!

Well that's it for day three!

It's not even 11 and your post made me hungry! Love the details of your photos - the mailbox, the retro stage, and of course the food!

What a beautiful trip. Been awhile since I've taken an actual vacation, and this gets me thinking.

Really dig the the antique letter box.

Love the Victorian house. Were you able to go inside? I bet it's chock full o' ghosts!
