Ok, one last "what I did on my vacation" post, then back to quilting.
I've been living right across the lake from this jewel for 30 years and never knew it existed!
No, this is not Florida. - its Lake Champlain on the New York side at dawn.
This is the campground beach
Same spot looking the other direction. Best part about this beach - you can bring your dog!
Although mine is a water wimp
The sunrise on the beach
There are campsites on the beach and on the calm kayak, canoe friendly river that flows into the lake. My mom and I took the canoe down the river but I didn't bring my camera. It was really nice and peaceful with lots of ducks and interesting mirror images from the calm water.
The river is on the right of this photo - I then went to the beach to watch the kite boarders. It's hard to see in the photo above but they surf being carried by big kites - crazy but looks like a blast.
Here you can sort of see the kite
Somebody built a "driftwood village"
I was supposed to stay two nights but since I don't sleep well in a tent, I bailed the second night. This was a Hathaway family reunion week end, so was able to see a lot of my relatives I only see once a year and am so glad they picked this spot. Hopefully will be a tradition.
Since I only live an hour and a half away, I drove home after dinner and caught this sunset on the ferry back to Vermont.
Perfect end to a perfect day
