Cecile's French Corner - Mount Dora, Florida

The outdoor eating area at Cecile's French Corner in Mt. Dora, Florida.

The following comes from the Internet:

"Mount Dora is a city in central Florida.  It's known for its antique shops and annual festivals.  Downtown, the Modernism Museum displays modern furniture.  Housed in a 1923 fire station, the Mount Dora History Museum documents local history.  An extensive collection of classic cars, plus a replica of a 1940s gas station, are on display at the Museum of Speed.  Northwest, bass-filled Lake Eustis has waterside restaurants."

We've visited Mt. Dora on numerous occasions.  It's a beautiful little city situated amongst rolling hills and numerous lakes, and is a great place to wander about, get something to eat, people watch, and/or find some special treasure in one of the many gift shops.

Laying Pipe

At first this conjunction of stop and go appears to involve road work. It does not. Workers are laying pipe along side of the road which means they have to park equipment, dirt, etc. on the road which means further they have to block off one half of the road and set up a method by which traffic can pass without head-on engagement.

All of this was happening in Umatilla, Florida.
