Our Summer Home

We are settling in and getting reaquainted with the place Paul called home for a lot of years before he arrived in California.  Old Forge is a beautiful little community in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, certainly not New York City!  We will be staying here until about Labor Day and then we will begin making our way to Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta, then back to California for the winter.  

South of Old Forge

Definitely not NYC!

The Adirondacks are not really high mountains but there are trees and lakes everywhere.  Old Forge is located where the Folton Chain of lakes flow into the Moose River.  The area is a destination summer retreat for people all over the east coast and this year Paul and I get to enjoy the area as tourists.  The town has lots of shops to explore, restaurants to try, bars for great conversations and lots of outdoor adventures which we hope to enjoy in the next few weeks. 

Singing Waters RV Camp

Beautiful trees

Singing Waters RV Camp is where we will call home for the next 2 months and it could not be more beautiful!   Surrounded by trees and blue sky with the Moose River runs right through the park (my neighbors have a riverfront site!).  The park is full of people that call this home for the summer, excaping the heat of the city.  Many come for the whole summer and others leave their RV here and come on weekends. 

Enjoying the River

After getting settled Paul returned to California on Thursday where he will work and see the girls before returning July 5th.  While Paul is gone Duke and I will spend our days getting to know the town and enjoying our temporary home.  

As soon as I dropped Paul at the airport a giant storm started through the area.  Duke and I got caught about an 1/8 of a mile from home and were drenched when we got home.  My clothes are taking forever to dry out as it is damp here in the mountains.  Today I spent the afternoon in town enjoying the Farmers Market which was very definitely local, and then later in the day we enjoyed The Sourmash Blues Band in the town square.  They were very good and the crowd was very into their music, although the crowd was only about 50 people so every seat was a good one.  

And, I started my job pouring wine for the Montezuma Winery tasting room here in Old Forge.   What a great job- pouring wine for people on vacation!  This is going to be an awesome summer.
