Dora Walters, senior editor of The Longboat Observer, is back in town, armed with her camera, pen and notepad. Walters, also known as Dora the Explorer, made her debut for the season after spending the summer in Morganton, Ga. She made an appearance Tuesday, Oct. 6, at Tiny’s of Longboat Key, wearing a hat and sunglasses to stay incognito. But she couldn’t stay anonymous for long. The crowd at the bar broke out in cheers as they rushed to greet their favorite observer.
Walters stopped by Tiny’s to wish bartender Deb Messina a happy birthday. Messina was celebrating her Oct. 7 birthday party a day early.
