Next up: 4 mile paddle through the Upper St. Regis to Spitfire Lake . It was drizzly, but we would not be prevented from paddling today! I climbed in to a touring kayak and was quickly reminded how much I LOVE paddling! I did whitewater kayaking during high school on the Potomac River.
Our route weaved through Lake St. Regis to Spitfire Lake to check out some GORGEOUS vacation homes. Some of those boat houses are bigger than most actual homes! From the lake we could look up and see the fire tower on the top of Mt St Regis. Very cool to see how high we hiked! We took an abridged tour of Spitfire Lake because by this point, the wind was picking up and it was gettiing CHILLY. Paddle back to the truck, quick!
: The rain continues! Since we traversed 10 miles on Friday by foot and boat, we didn’t feel too badly about skipping another wet paddle. Instead we paid a visit to Ommegang Brewery and Cooperstown Brewing Company on the way back to Endicott, NY. John and his dad were in heaven My favorite brew was the Ommegang winter seasonal: Adoration Ale. Right next to Cooperstown Brewing Company there was a haunted house that I just had to stop at for pictures. Not a bad end to a long weekend adventure, right?!
Now it’s , and we survived the 5.5 car ride back to DC. Busy doing laundry and catching up on email. This trip knocked off one of my 30 Before 30 Goals : 48 hours without social media, email, etc. It was nice, but made way easier due to the fact that cell service was unavailable for most of it. Glad that’s off my list and I don’t have to do that again. I’m an email addict.
How do you handle crappy weather on your vacations?
Do you take breaks from electronic media?
