Jun 24, 2018 - Sunday

We returned to Albany to worship with the brethren at Mohawk Valley church. Preachers: Dan Bunting and Simon Harris It is another stormy day. We returned home about 4 and managed to sit outside awhile. It is overcast and 70 degrees. : ) Tomorrow we cross the border into Canada due north of where we are. Then we will turn east toward Levis, Quebec, although we will not make it to Levis tomorrow. We're hoping for a drive of about 180 miles. Not knowing how much time will be spent at the border, we wanted plenty of cushion time. While driving...

Jun 23, 2018 - A Day Off

After three long days of activities, we decided we would take today off to recover. It turned out to be raining so it was a two fold good decision. We were able to have a morning campfire to use the remaining wood that cannot enter Canada. Laundry needed to be done, and groceries have to be bought. Come Monday, we plan to drive three days straight before we have a day off the road. We feel we have had a good visit here. The weather was great for the days we were out sightseeing. There is much left unseen, but that’s always the case. We...

Jun 22, 2018 - Lake George Cruise

When we opened the door this morning, we were greatly pleased that the sky was bright blue!! Yesterday's decision was a good move. The Mohican Paradise Bay Cruise lasted just short of 3 hours. During the cruise, jackets were necessary. We sat on the upper deck on the bow. The cruise was narrated and very informative. We traveled north on the western side and returned on the eastern. The water was gentle. In all, Lake George is home to over 170 islands, 148 of them state-owned. Primitive camping is allowed on the state owned islands. Lake...

Jun 21, 2018 - Lake Placid and Interior Adirondacks

We awoke to a sky heavy with dark gray clouds. It was our intention to do the steamboat ride on Lake George today. The decision was made to switch our plans for the next two days. Of course, by mid morning the sky was clear. At least it was where we were. The interstate was the fastest route north to Lake Placid. However, Lake Placid is west of the interstate. The drive took to Lake Placid took us through the high peaks area and was spectacular. Lake Placid (the city) was a crowded tourist trap. We did not go to the Olympic Training...

Oct 6, 2016 - Prospect Mnt. Lake George, NY

Last day here in upstate New York and the leaves are now yellow, gold and red! We drove the 9.7 miles to Prospect Mountain, the highest peak in the area at 2032', on a clear sunny day and we could see all the way to Vermont! It's a $10 fee to drive the road and it was well worth it to finally see the trees in their fall colors! There are 3 viewing areas on the road to the summit with plenty of parking on the way to the large parking lot near the top. Motorcycles can drive to the summit but cars, trucks and busses must park in the lot and...

Oct 5, 2016 - Boat Tour, Lake George, NY

Our 1 hour cruise of Lake George on the wooden ship Horicon (85' long built in 1988) was spectacular. It takes getting on the water to really appreciate the beauty of the lake and shoreline. The lake is 32 miles long, 3 miles wide and 200' at the deepest point with the village at the southern end. There are more than 300 islands and many can be rented by the hour, day, week or longer.

Oct 4, 2016 - Fort William Henry, Lake George, NY

The battlefield from the siege of Lake George (French and Indian War) is now a large public park in Lake George Village. Next door is the reconstructed Fort William Henry (burnt to the ground by the French after the surrender of British/colonial forces). Indians fighting with French Forces killed many of the retreating soldiers and camp followers; rumor has it the Indians had been drinking and angry they received no booty from the French victory. Interesting notes: the novel, "The Last of the Mohicans’' depicts this event. The fort was...

Jul 29, 2016 - Lake George

Changed plans to do the Finger Lakes until mid August, so that we can meet up with friends from Tampa, who will be visiting. Lake George was a great alternative and luck was with us. We pulled in to make boat ride reservations, got right on and had lunch while on a two hour cruise on the lake. The day was clear and mild, but sunny enough to give me a bit of a burn. No cap and thinning hair + sun will do that. The Million Dollar shoreline, named for the "modest" summer homes, lived up to its name. Lots of folks enjoying the water and sun....

May 20, 2016 - Bittersweet Memories

We headed north to Lake George, not sure how long we would be staying. We were waiting for the paperwork to be approved by the court appointing me as executor of my father’s estate. There will then be some papers to sign in order to get the distributions started. Fortunately everything was approved fairly quickly so we didn’t have to try and get things signed long distance. We had a good time while we were there, but it is really a surreal experience to be in the area and not have my parents nearby. The only time I have ever spent in that...
