Eustis and Mount Dora, Florida

Alternative Routes

As usual, unless we are short of time, we ask our trusty German GPS to give us some alternative routes to our next destination. This often results in new discoveries and fun mini-adventures. So instead of heading for I75 down the West Coast of Florida we went down the middle and discovered two ‘gems’. The first of these was Eustis, Florida and the Lake Eustis Museum of Art. We found it looking out of the window of the Barnwood BBQ diner. It’s located next to a marshy pool by the side of the lake, populated by many fish and birds. We benefited from a wonderful display by a Snowy Egret. The museum contained a display of some neat artwork, paint and sculpture, by Kace Montgomery and Kate Esplen showing sandhill cranes and horses.

Following this, we drifted into a really quaint town of Mount Dora, which reminded us of Highlands, NC where we found a beautiful lake and relaxed by the lake until we were invaded by a Segway Tour.
