Because we are inlanders now and live hours from the nearest low- or high-tide, the very next best thing to the waves and dunes is a trip to Lake George, or any Adirondack Lake, where I can travel to in an hour or less and feel as though I'm far away from home. I especially love Lake George. It pulls me with such magnetic force on any summer day with warm temperatures and bright skies. Within the past week, I spent time in Fourth Lake in Luzurne with my daughter Katie and her husband Bill, and grandsons Hank and Pete, and the next day took off for a solo and beautifully peaceful morning on the beach of Rogers Memorial Park in Bolton Landing (Lake George). Then Tuesday I spent the afternoon with friends on the dock of Wiawaka's boat house (also Lake George).
I so love the Adirondacks and its lakes, but especially Lake George, a true gift to those of us who live close enough to enjoy visiting often. Tomorrow I'm back to writing about muffins (orange cranberry to be specific) but in the meantime, here are some photos of this week's lake visits... Can't wait to dip my toes into the lake again, as soon as possible!!!
