En Vacance

We've been on vacation for the past week while we had relatives from Tennessee visiting.

We did a grand tour of some of our favorite spots in the Adirondacks.  Day one was Bolton Landing on Lake George.

The view above is of Green Island and the Sagamore Resort from the dock in the park.

Day two was Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain, the Winter Olympic Museum (featuring memorabilia from the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics), and an awesome dinner at the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery. Even the rest areas had Adirondack themes, including moose and bear weathervanes!

On Day Three we visited the Saratoga National Cemetery in Schuylerville, NY (a beautiful veteran's cemetery).  This monument was incredible! The draped flag is carved out of e same granite as the rest of the monument! The "red" stripes and "blue" background areas are polished granite whilst the "white" areas are rough cut. Amazing!

We rested on Day Four, then went to Inlet and Old Forge on Day Five.  We saw these adorable chihuahuas on a bed in a store window in Old Forge!

Day Six had us taking an 18 1/2 mile bike ride from Glens Falls to Lake George on the Warren County Bike Trail. 

We're exhausted now and need a vacation from our vacation! 

I'll be back in the sewing room this week!
