Mt. Dora Day

Mark and I took off Sunday and enjoyed a pretty drive to Mount Dora...a funny name for a city in flat Florida, but it does have a slight hill. There were all sorts of stores there, lots of antiques and yarn shops, that sort of thing. We drove over to Eustis to the park and watched a wedding ceremony, then a little later, two strange groups of people doing what they call "drum circles". One starts drumming and the rest join in, making a bunch of banging music basically. They all had their drums and djumbe's, one woman was playing a pair of kitchen spoons. Anything that makes banging noise... They looked pretty crunchy granola. You know the type, Birkenstock shoes, scarf in hair, and some bearded long haired guys. Beatnicks!

We brought our little dog with us and she had a ball playing in the park. She met some larger dogs and leapt and frolicked with them. I'd like to take Juliet to a dog park so she could play without the restraint of a leash.
