Creative, Frugal, British!
This year, I have challenged myself to A Year of Adventure! I’m looking to have big & small adventures, frual & probably a few expensive, close to home & hopefully a few far from home!
This week I was wanting a “far from home” adventure, but time & budget demanded a change of attitude! So, with that in mind, kids and mom in tow, we headed off to Mount Dora and had a little bit of British in our own backyard!
Britain in our Own Backyard
I remembered in the Celebrate Jane Austen article I wrote that there are several British Tea Houses fairly close to home. So, with a little research on the internet, we decided to try the Windsor Rose Tea Room in Mount Dora, Florida.
Mount Dora is a short 30 minute ride from our home, so geographically, budget-wise and time-wise it hit the mark!
We had intended to try the Windsor Rose’s high tea, but when we got there decided on lunch. The menu is fabulous! Here’s a look at what we devoured:
- With a little creativity, patience and research there are closer-to-home ways to explore the world!
- Times with kids, mom and grandma are precious and worth savoring!
- Never underestimate a teenagers appetite 🙂
- While expensive adventures are fun, creative, frugal adventures are too!
