Mount Dora an idyllic road trip

Spent the past weekend in Mount Dora, the charming town in Lake County.
Shopping. Strolling. Eating.
Sherri and I did it all and it was delightful.
One of our favorite stops was at the high school.
Mount Dora is the home of the -- ta, dah! -- Hurricanes, too.
Their FFA program hosted a chili competition Saturday evening and it was $5 per person for all you can eat.
The cups were small, but after sampling the wares from more about eight or nine booths, Sherri and I were full.
After we voted -- I like spicy, she doesn't -- we strolled down toward the football field.
Mount Dora's Canes are a Class 3A program and play in a stadium nestled into a hollow surrounded by woods.
It must rock on fall Friday nights.
After that we drove back downtown, listening to music, enjoying the evening breeze off of Lake Dora and watching the sunset.
We got some ice cream, too, at one shop that must've been built back in the early 1900s before calling it a night.
Definitely going back for another visit.
What an idyllic place.
