It was a perfect ending to summer. Then it was time to take back the lake(s), with very few people around once the kids go back to school. After a Sea Doo exploration of Lower Lake George on Wednesday with Jim R., I took my kayak to Sacandaga Lake on Friday. This gives the literal meaning to pulling the plug. Sacandaga is a reservoir that they drain down after the summer, for water down the Hudson and New York City (Originally there was a town before they flooded the valley to make the reservoir). It is going down a foot a day.
You have to be prepared for this. Some boats are still floating and others are high and dry.
I wouldn't suggest going down this 'water' slide...
Now we are finishing up our long weekend of Adirondack Nationals Car Show, Tugboat Roundup, and Rice-O-Rama motorcycle show and swap meet, where Dave won second place in the mini-bike class with his Trail 70. He also brought his KZ1000 and RV90 (the only one there).
This morning I woke to 46 degree temps and turned the heat on in the house for the first time. Ahhh, summer of 2016, gone but not forgotten!
