A Great Weekend

Our weekend got off to a great beginning when Laurie and George arrived Friday evening. After I got out of work, I picked up some pizza and wings and we relaxed and caught up on each other's latest happenings. We were so busy chatting and catching up that I completely forgot to take pictures!

After a good night’s sleep, we got ready for a day trip to Lake George. We were so lucky because it was an absolutely beautiful day. Our plan was to take a boat trip on the Mohican.

First we decided to walk a little bit about town. We actually didn’t go into too many of the shops. I guess there is something about spending months clearing out rooms and carting stuff to garage sales and good will places that takes the fun out of going into knick knack stores! We did find one place to go in and check out, though…

A wine store!! Where we indulged in a wine tasting.

By the time we finished with the wine tasting, (and purchasing a bottle or two), it was time to find a place to eat, so we walked back toward the place where we would be boarding the boat, and decided to eat at a casual place with a great view of the lake.

Here is the view from our table.

Lunch was ok. It was a good simple lunch, but I’d say the view from the table was the best part.

By this time, it was just about time to head over for boarding.

It was such a gorgeous day!!

 

I’ve tried to insert a slideshow of our trip, but I’m not sure if it’s going to work. Here goes…

  4. Funny how shopping loses all meaning when you are clearing out or have cleared out and have no room for STUFF. However, we always have managed to find room (temporarily) for a bottle of wine.
