We can't believe Christmas is 3 weeks away!
It seems that the year flies by, and before you know it...
Yesterday we got prepared a bit.
Harvey got cleaned inside,
and I put out our Christmas decorations..
George & I took a ride into Mt. Dora and finished our Christmas shopping.
When we were all finished, we stopped in Eustis.
The town was named for General Eustis,
who had skirmishes with the Seminole Indians in the late 1800's.
There is a huge lake, 7,000 acres big, that has a nice elevated walkway
with boat launches and fishing piers.
It attracts some nice bird activity,
Of course there were some 'common' birds as well..
as well as a nice statue in the fountain..
We also saw quite a few turtles..
The nicest part was the sunset!
Afterwards we took a ride over to Lady Lake
and went to dinner at Sweet Tomatoes.
We love that place!
We can eat great salads and soups from their 'bars'..
The weather this week is in the low 80's,
perfect for exploring!
