In total Flat Susan will visit and stay with 36 people before she returns home. Yes, thirty six! That's a lot of travelling for such a tiny person. If you are new to this blog perhaps you should scroll to the very first post so you know more about who she is and what is happening with her. You are welcome to take the button on the right to display on your own blog and we hope you will visit the blogs of the people she has been staying with and leave a kind comment after your reading.

In the meantime, I've had a little guest with me..her name is Flat Susan and you can find out all about her and her travels here.
Last week she got a chance to play in the snow. I was completely shocked when I awoke the day before Thanksgiving to find snow had fallen. It was in the forecast for Atlanta, but I live about 30 minutes south so wasn't expecting anything. Well, I was wrong!!!

Here she is at my front door. We're all ready for November and Thanksgiving now with the mums, scarecrow, and fall wreath. :-)

My small town, however, doesn't know the song. :) It's lights out and the sidewalks rolled up at 5:00 p.m. folks! (Pic heavy post)
So FS and I went for a walk early Friday morning. It's a nice peaceful place to walk at 9:00 am before the businesses are open and the tourists flock in.
It's also a one stoplight town....that's small. :)
Looking down Donnelly Street on the west side of the street.
We've crossed Donnelly and are headed south.
A few early risers enjoying breakfast on the outdoor deck above.
A restaurant that I think FS and her countrywomen would like
The Windsor Tea Room was established by a British ex-pat. Continuing down Fourth Avenue we come to the newly finished pedestrian mall. It's only one block long. Told ya, we're a small town!
This is the original 1880's train depot now our Chamber of Commerce building. At the end of the pedestrian mall is the yacht club and new docks with a seating area for viewing the sunsets. More about those tomorrow.
Turning around and heading north we come to the building that housed our stamp store. Where I once worked and taught classes. Sadly, it's been closed for four years.
The posts are wrapped with lighted garlands ...getting ready for Christmas.
At the corner we turn right and we're back on Fifth Ave almost where we started. Here we find this interesting store facade from the 1950s.
Let's go up the hill and see what's going on, shall we?
Ah, power company workers stringing more lights. My little town puts up over a million and has a big extravaganza on the last Saturday of November to Light Up Mount Dora.
Hope you enjoyed the tour. :) See you tomorrow for sunsets over the lake.
Celebrate where you live!

Today's post is a photo montage of our walk along the Boardwalk on Lake Dora. My first attempt at putting this together. I hope it runs for you.
iPad users you can enlarge the usual way. For laptops click Boardwalk Photos or the tab above labeled Boardwalk to Palm Island. Click on the first pic will enlarge them and you can scroll thru at your leisure.

Nan is linking up with Elizabeth and Bleubeard for T for Tuesday and her visitor from across the pond via California is none other than.....Flat Susan!! Here's what Nan has to say:
I am so excited to be hosting her for a visit to central Florida. She actually arrived on Saturday and was such a dear to wait patiently while I finished my cleaning chores this weekend.
So here's Flat Susan with all of her traveling gear and a few pieces of my art and since it's T day, my beverage glass.
We awoke this morning to a beautiful sunny Florida day. To celebrate FS's arrival and our planned activities, I presented her with her very own Harley Davidson! The next pic shows FS standing next to her motorcycle ready to go!
In the corner you see a bit of a gorgeous tag. Here's a better pic of this fabulous tag that Krisha has sent me. I love it, Krisha! Thank you!
Well, we're off to enjoy this lovely day and see what we can see around my hood. Have a wonderful day!
