Mount Dora: A Follow-Up
Recently, my wife and I returned from a terrific trip right here in Florida.
I’m no photographer, but I just downloaded some pictures and I thought I would do a little follow-up.
The first picture above is the historic Inn that we booked during our time in Mount Dora. Below is another view of the inn from the boat dock on Lake Dora.
From this dock, we launched our kayaks, but little did we know the lake was loaded with alligators. There was not one sign warning people, and my wife was less than thrilled.
We guessed at the length of some gators we saw and agreed that too many of them were in the ten to twelve-foot range for the lake to be considered safe water. If you look carefully, at the next photo, you can see the eyes of a six-footer staring at us. We are pretty accurate on the size of this one because when we returned to the inn, he was resting comfortably on the beach and blocked our exit from the kayaks.
In the next photo, you might be able to make out the shape of some of the larger reptiles in the distance. Next time, I will be better prepared with the camera. I was more focused on making sure my wife didn’t fall out of the kayak.
