Every summer my two sisters, dad and I get together -- a pact we made years ago in honor of the importance of family. This year we went to Linda's in Orlando and it was completely relaxing. We had no plans, just woke up each morning and said, "What shall we do today?" No tourist traps or amusement parks for us -- we took the roads less traveled to little towns outside of the city for leisurely site seeing.
One such place was De Leon Springs Park.
Old Spanish Sugar Mill Restaurant.
Bowls of fresh eggs and pitchers of stone ground grain pancake batter are brought to your table to pour on your griddle, built into your table. Fresh blueberries, chocolate chips, banana slices and other tasty sides are provided to make your pancakes oh so yummy! I highly recommend the french toast -- the batter they bring to dip your bread in is delicious.
The old gift shop where I bought postcards and a "Flippin' Out" t'shirt for my grand-niece....
Another day we drove to the quaint town of Mount Dora for lunch and antiquing -- main street below:
My neice holding "Miss Chicken" -- notice the kids giving the chickens rides in the baby stoller. They play with these chickens like I used to play with my pet cats!
Sleuth's Mystery Dinner Theater one night.
Highly recommend it -- slightly risque humor, great wit!
