In about 4 months, we celebrate some sort of normalcy. Lake Dora. Its stopped being a show years ago, it has always been a gathering, a celebration, and start to our communities season. YA YA, folks in Florida go boating all year.. I get it, but our boats need a break, and that is why we have winter. To stop and work on our boats.
This year of all the years, Lake Dora represents so much more than an event, a gathering, its a rebirth. Ya Ya I know to many, especially in Florida, many have just gone on with their lives. Okay can we just remove Florida from this conversation. For the rest of us. Its a pilgrimage, and light at the end of the tunnel. The first bird one sees on an ocean crossing, the glimmer of sunrise, the first time your wife smiles at you after you buy one to many boats. That’s what Lake Dora is. We need Lake Dora, we need the North Star, out community will be gathering this year, possibly in record numbers. And hopefully our abnormal lives can get back to abnormal.
Here’s to 112 Days til Lake Dora. I can smell the Jalapeno Poppers already.
