The garden and park is still as beautiful and seems like the peacock is the new mascot there!

Winter Park was my favourite area when I lived in FL and a stroll thru’ Park Ave convinced me that it is still my favourite area here in central FL. Glad to see that both The Park Plaza***** a hotel with charm and personality and Timothy’s Gallery are still around, Both L&M worked on Park Avenue hosting and serving in this no longer existing restaurant, La Venezia. Also there was a Gap that May had part-time job there. Today many new eateries and shops.

In fond memories of Ann Gerken as I pass the Morse Museum. She has taught and shown me much of what I know about Southern Living & Hospitality. Thank you for crossing my path as a neighbour and a good friend. May she RIP.
