Another weekend, another adventure... this time in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. On Thursday the three of us from central NY and our Manhattan daughters gathered in Lake Placid.
Our oldest, a triathlete, travels to Lake Placid every summer for a training weekend. Due to race schedules and work commitments, she was not able to join her usual group this year. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for a family getaway, so we booked a condo and drove north for an "alternative" training weekend. While she did her swim, bike, and run, others of us walked, read, and shopped. Later we all gathered for the prime event - dinner!!
The girls drove back to NYC Sunday morning, while three of us continued on to Plattsburg for lunch, then Ausable Chasm (the colorful specs in the lower right are people)...
before landing in Saratoga Springs for the night. Monday we visited some favorite spots in Saratoga, toured the battlefield at Saratoga National Historic Park, and had a picnic overlooking the Hudson River.
We plan to stay put for the rest of the month, but who knows what adventures September will bring?
