Ahhhh.....it's a lovely 45 degrees outside this morning in Philadelphia. We had a wonderful time this weekend up in the Adirondacks. It was just beautiful.....I'm working on the slideshow of the millions of pictures that we took of the fall colors. We might have been a week too early for the peak colors but it was still just beautiful to this Floridian.
It was a long five hours drive but the BF was a road warrior and got us there safely no thanks to the maniac turnpike drivers in New Jersey. It was a wonderful surprise when we awoke in the morning to see the fall colors by daylight. We took a nice walk from the cabin down to Lake George that proved to be longer than we thought. Lots of pictures from that view.
Around noon we headed up to the Ausable Chasm, http://www.ausablechasm.com/, about an hour north of where we were staying in Bolton Landing. It was the most beautiful day! We took the 2 mile hike along the chasm and took another million photos. Saturday evening we went into the charming little town of Bolton Landing, http://www.boltonchamber.com/, and got takeout dinner from Fredericks, http://www.fredericksrestaurant.com/ , to eat by the fireplace in our cabin. Neither of us had every made a fire before so after our first attempt failed we called Mike, the Candlelight Cottages owner, http://www.candlelightcottages.com/ , and he was kind enough to come down to the cabin and get it going for us. It was wonderful and the BF loved the heat from the fire. He got a little carried away with the wood so the cabin got pretty smokey. I washed all of clothing Monday morning to get rid of that smokey smell. We had a great time!
Sunday morning we packed up and headed to Lake George to take a Champagne Brunch on The Lac du Saint Sacrement cruise ship http://www.lakegeorgesteamboat.com/ . We had the perfect table for viewing the shores of Lake George, the food was delicious, and the two hour trip was just beautiful. We were able to take pictures of the Sagamore, http://www.thesagamore.com/ from the lake view. We had stopped there late Saturday afternoon to see the historic old resort. Now that would be a lovely place to stay at even though it originally opened in 1883!
It was a dream come true getaway and we had a wonderful time. I'll work on the "picture show" today and hopefully have that up soon.
