Hopefully I can get this post up, the Internet coverage has been very spotty.
My brothers, sister and I gave my dad a present for his 90th birthday last December, a family gathering up at Brant Lake, NY where we spent many happy summer vacations growing up.
We all drove up, my dad in his red convertible, and met at a great vacation rental my sister-in-law found on line.
The house sleeps up to twenty six, and there is room for all of us, brothers, sisters, spouses, even a few grandkids (none of ours, sadly).
The house is right on Brant Lake, located in the heart of the Adirondack Park. This is the view looking right out the back porch.
We took the Sea Eagle out on its maiden voyage. It works well, it doesn’t handle like a canoe or a hard side kayak, but we had lots of fun. We still need to perfect the technique of getting in and out of it, as well as coordinating our paddling. Too often we banged paddles. We need more practice.
Marti got the hang of the Linda Payne position really quickly. We paddled around some islands,
and this great house built on an island in the lake.
The views around the lake are stunning.
We enjoyed having a campfire in the evening. My dad, my three brothers, me and Marti.
My sister and her daughter and two of my sister-in-laws.
The weather has been absolutely perfect, sunny, warm, no humidity and cool nights. We picked a great week to come.
Now we need to get out in the Sea Eagle and practice some more. Sometimes you can have fun without your RV, but we don’t want to make a habit out of it! ;c)
