Yalaha Bakery and Mount Dora

   Not much going on this passed week. We did do a road trip to Yalaha to go to the Yalaha Bakery. It is a German bakery in the tiny town of Yalaha, population of about 1200 spread over 15 square miles. So you can see not to much of a town in the area. But that being said the bakery was very busy. We went with friends Lance and Andrea and about 10 other couples from our RV Park. The bakery has a good selection of breads and pastries.

      We did get some pretzel cheese bread, pretzel rolls and cherry and apple strudel. There is also a small deli with great sandwich's. A great setting area outside.

 We had to move 20 to 25 people to get this picture, just kidding, they were all sitting on the sunny side.
    While our group was there another group of about 20 came. Then a few more. It did get a little busy. All the baked goods were very good. Great art work on the building. .
 Lance and Andrea, look close at the refection in the glass, you can see Linda taking the photo and Bob in back of our car. She just can't keep of the picture.
     See  a very interesting history of the early town and its name can be found there.
   From Yalaha we drove to Mount Dora. A cute little town about 20 miles from Yalaha. We visited the Lakeside Inn. It is the oldest continuously operated hotel in Florida. A very nice well preserved inn. see  See the piano way in the back of the room, well Bob couldn't resist.
 A great bar with a neat glass etching.

 The Inn and porch sitting area over looking the lake.

 Check out the sign at the Bavarian Haus
While at the lake this guy appeared.

 See the dead branch, that is where he was sitting checking out his domain.
 Checking out the float plane to make sure it is flight worthy, you think he knows what he is looking at.
    Also see    for more information and history on this cute town. Front of book store, check out the detail cement work on the front of the store.

 A close up of the cement work.
 Some really great movies playing.
Pet sitting. just think they are saying, "what are you looking at" or mom, "he's looking at me".
