Bougainvillea (just like grows in Southern Africa) in Mount Dora-- an adorable little town I visited with Martha.
The brick arched gateway led into the garden patio of a former tea house.

We wandered the streets of Mount Dora, stopping to check out little specialty shops (my favorite was The Spice & Tea Exchange). Of course we stopped by one of the local sweet shops for something cold and chocolate-y (gelato!) mid-afternoon as well. After a walk along the boardwalk by the lake, we meandered back downtown to enjoy dinner at the Lost Parrot, a local restaurant with outdoor dining. As the sun set, we made one final stop at the mini lighthouse down at the lake.
