I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

Our trip to the Adirondacks. Part I.

Adirondack Park is over six million acres of peace and tranquility in New York State.  It's difficult to explain the gentleness of the area without being able to share the clean smell of the mountain air or the sound of the water lapping at the shore of the lake.  Being there clears the mind and restores the soul.  Life moves at a slow pace, yet an exciting one.  A short hike transports you to a breathtaking vista.  A canoe ride moves you to explore the shoreline of a lake where nature rules.  We were ready for the relaxation we craved.
Pine trees abound here!  It's truly a nature lover's paradise.
Reaching for the sun, this small tree is an example of some of the new growth on the forest floor.
We happened to be there during a time when the clouds were ever-changing.

When friends invited us to their family camp, we said yes!
Land meets lake.

A stunning display of intense energy.

We sat and watched the sun move in and out of the clouds.  A little rain shower didn't scare us away.
Snacks anyone?
Smoked trout and good company.  What more could we ask for?

A place to unwind.
We can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
The fresh air made us sleepy.  Slumber calls.
