Springing out of bed, we donned our bathing attire and loaded in to the Krisan mobile. Our first stop was Yalhala, an authentic German bakery. We enjoyed our breakfast in the ambience of the old world. Shortly thereafter, we were delivered to Wild Waters, a great old school water park. It was adjacent to the "World Famous" Silver Springs, an attraction Clark enjoyed with his parents 33 years earlier. It was enjoyable to see Classic Florida, and a couple of the surviving attractions from the P.D. (Pre- Disney) era of central Florida. The waters WERE wild and we all had good clean fun (ha ha). We shot down the Silver Bullet, spun around the Alligator Ambush, and splashed through the Hurricane. The kids couldn't get enough and didn't want to leave. We got home just before the sitter arrived and off to a delightful dinner in quaint, charming, and historic Mt Dora. Clarkism: Hey Kids, did you know that Mt Dora was founded purely as a vacation destination for the wealthy Northerners? Notables such as the Pullmans of Pullman Train Cars used to play here.
