Cruising The Lake

I'm really behind with blogging this trip and it's already Tuesday night. But I want to go back to Saturday when we took a cruise on Lake George because it was really interesting to see the lake. Lake George is in New York State at the southeast base of the Adirondack Mountains. It flows north into Lake Champlain and then into the St. Lawrence River and ultimately to the Atlantic. It's about 32 miles long and the boat cruises for about 14 miles up and back and takes about 2 hours. We also had lunch on board. Very peaceful and relaxing. Our boat was the Lac du Saint Sacrement, the largest of the 3 boats that cruise the lake. There was a sailboat regatta going on. . .see the white dots in the distance.

At the point where the boat turns to come back down the lake is a beautiful hotel sitting out on a spit of land. It is the historic Sagamore Hotel which we've decided we're coming back and staying in--maybe next year. Very elegant.

On the way back to the pier, I played a little with my camera. Here are some shots.

All in all, a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Very nice photog work. This hotel looks more than a bit splendid. I think perchance we may pay them a visit. They probably don't get too many like me and Shasta - straight up outta the 'hood!
