Mt. Dora & Clearwater by Foot, Canal Boat, & Seaplane
We parked at Clearwater Lake in Ocala National Forest as a center from which to tour the Harris Lakes area. This fresh water lake is circled by a trail which we took by foot; then hopped over to Mt. Dora for some “cute town” time; took a canal boat ride through the Mt. Dora Canal; and then Colin ventured onto a Seaplane ride while I hid out safely in the RV. Mt. Dora and Eustis were in full spring bloom and the weather was a lovely break from the hot weather and bugs further south. A fun event in Mt. Dora was “Van Night” where many of the local restaurants brought food for purchase. The town sets up a no-car zone and picnic tables for those who purchase food. What a funny idea, and a great evening to people watch.
